Not sure how those guys aren't 3rd liners shutting down 1st liners...

Not only is he not a 3rd liner, but he doesn't shut down those guys consistently. When they do, it's a team effort from the goal out. If you can get a single 3rd liner to shut down all those all stars "consistently", then you hit the jackpot. As good as a superstar, about, if you can "consistently" stop one.

Would you say Hanzal was a - player tonight because he's lousy defensively? Maybe the high skill level of his foes had something to do with it.
