Is Marc-André Bergeron a good defenseman?

Was Mike Green a great defenseman when he had two PPG seasons?

Is Sheldon Souray a very good defenseman?

And that is not to say that Schultz won't be a very good/great defenseman. But if he is, it won't simply be because he's putting up points.
Not really. If you're talking a true #1 guy, then offense is very important.
