Well, I'm not sure who proclaimed him the best shutdown D in junior hockey. But even if he is the best shutdown D in junior hockey, that doesn't mean he's going to be the best shutdown D in the NHL. I like the kid, but we're still talking about a prospect that really doesn't excel in any particular aspect even amongst his own age group (except shutting down guys not named McDavid, apparently.)

All signs seem to point to Harrington being a legit prospect with real NHL upside, but I like my top 4 defenseman to stand out at some aspect. Otherwise, they're Mark Eaton.
