I'm concerned with getting a top-end NHL defenseman: not specifically trying to get an offensive defenseman.
Well seeing how Morgan Rielly is a prototypical offensive defenceman, like Kris Letang, like Erik Karlsson, like Tomas Kaberle, like Drew Doughty, like Cam Fowler, like Pk Subban etc, you'd think you'd want to see how well they fare rather than taking statistics of all dman despite the fact that some enter the league as offensive dman and some enter as defensive dman (which you could argue could effect the ratio of those entering the league based on height). It's not all black and white. There are plenty of top-end offensive dman that are around Rielly's height.
