How do you figure a 6'5" D that skates well, handles the puck well and has a cannon for a shot, plays 1st pair in the AHL, is not going to be better then Hjalmarsson or Leddy. How did you come to this reasoning?
Leddy has been doing great, he's a man amongst boys. Stats don't tell the whole story as he has clearly been the Hogs best Dman. You would know that if you watched the games.

How do you come to the reasoning that the 6'-5 player will be better than Leddy and Hjalmarsson just because he has done all of that outside of the NHL? Lots of players play well in lower leagues and play like crap when they get to the bigs.
