You can be a good player on a bad team. Besides, Tyutin was top pair on the Rangers as well before he was traded.

He's stepped into the league and has played like a top pair defender for 2 different clubs. I see no reason as to why he isn't considered a top pairing defenseman.

You clearly don't know what an incredible defensman or top pairing pairing defensman is if you think Tyutin is either of those things.

Avs say no to Tyutin+late 1st, and also say to to Tyutin straight up for Stastny.

Tyutin is pretty much your prototypical top pairing defenseman.
