Can Myers develop into a top shutdown/defensive minded guy? Absolutely, but he's not now.
Can Myers turn into someone who isn't viewed as at least "soft" for his size? Again absolutely once he figures out that he has authority over the guys smaller than him but unfortunately thats not him now, a few highlight reel hits(arguably both being moderately defensive reaction not offensive in nature) doesnt change that fact that he isn't physically imposing yet.
What he does do well is use his reach and large frame well for positioning somethng that may prove to be his biggest strength in the longterm.
Not saying I completely disagree with you guys at all, just dont like the label "defensive" being used to describe him at this point, because its his offensive game that makes him special. Cheers
I personally think that he will eventually round out his abilities, and be a player that can excell on both sides of the puck, making him and Sekera a scary pairing in the future.
