Perhaps, but that's like saying "I doubt that the Earth will abruptly stop spinning tomorrow, thus flinging us all into space." Normally when such numbers are mentioned with regards to defensemen, they're confined to the realm of hyperbole, not rational discussion.

And yes, that's an extreme example, but frankly given that this is prompted by inappropriate use of hyperbolic projections, one can be forgiven for presuming that an even greater unrealistic extreme is necessary to illustrate the point.

"I don't care if it's a shutout, so long as it's a win." --Anton Forsberg, after his 1-0 OT game-, series-, and Cup-winning shutout in the 2016 Calder Cup Finals

Congratulations to all Las Vegas area hockey fans, present and future!
