People seem to fail to take this into consideration and label Getzlaf as being average at best defensively. From 08-09 to 10-11 Getzlaf's line would go head to head against the opposing teams top forwards and Getzlaf's line would normally come out better off. While he wasn't being used in a strict shutdown sense, Getzlaf has always very capable defensively. He's no Selke candidate, but he's certainly above average.

Assuming Getzlaf bounces back from his bad year, when you factor in physical play and offensive ability he should take this poll easily.
