Yeah, for sure.
I certainly don't remember him that way.
If anything, I remember him being among the best D-men in the league and was the defensive rock for many LA teams that lets say, weren't known for strong defensive play as a unit heh.

I think he did more and was more responsible for any success his team had in '98 than any other D-man did for theirs that year.
