and he actually got a point. Not a fraction as flashy but you also don't have to ignore a handful of less than stellar defensive plays.
Pretty bold statement that can definitely be debated. He wasn't even assigned to shutdown Yakupov's line. It was Harrington and Percy who shut him down, and it wasn't til Hamilton was paired up with Harrington in the final minutes of the game that Yakupov was able to score against him. I don't blame Hamilton for that, but I wouldn't call him the total shutdown on defense.
