I don't think either Fontinato nor Goegan belongs in the MLD both of them were top-3 defensemen for lousy defensive teams.
For two seasons Fontinato was top-3 for an awesome defensive team.

There's a place for Goegan, but not the MLD, I agree. Fontinato, on the other hand, has some all-star recognition that is impossible to ignore. At worst, he's an elite "niche player" in the MLD. A better, defense-only version of Marty McSorley, who I think is an excellent spare.
