He was one of the premier shut-down D in the league (pre-lockout). Certainly no worse than the "#1 guy" for the Canes in their Cup victory. His problem was in his prime years, he was about the only guy that could actually play *defense* on the blueline. Sure as heck was the type of defenseman we sorely lacked against the Bruins in that Cup Final series.
