- You are overstating the defensive ability of a guy like Brian Campbell who is far from a defensive star and will be playing a lot more minutes than your bottom-6 forwards.
This is an important point too. I realize Campbell's defense has progressed to the point where his apologists will call it "acceptable" now and that's fine, but that doesn't mean it's "acceptable" for his career. Looking at his whole career, or at least his whole relevant career, his defensive play still averages out to "below average", and below average in an NHL setting is even less than that in an ATD/MLD setting where most players were typically average or better in most respects.
I don't mean for this to be a point about campbell in particular; it applies to everyone.
