He is being punished because he is playing second fiddle to an elite centerman in the NHL. While I agree he doesn't quite have the skill and proof to be a true #1 yet, it seems rather ridiculous when you are bringing this up on D-men with a comparable being Chris Butler. One of these guys is doing a ton more than the other.

I never said Butler was a #7 defenseman. But its even more stupid to bring up Kyle Turris in an argument of Butler's defense right now. Kyle Turris is a much better player in a more valuable position.
you are still missing the point, badly at that.

We are talking in the present, not the future, no one is suggesting Turris will never be a #1 center.

And when you quoted TheGleninator he was replaying to someone who called Butler a #7 defenseman, that's what brought up the analogy. He wasn't comparing the 2 players either.

But I am finished with this pointless bickering, we have tried to make it as clear as possible what was meant but you are twisting into it being some sort of insult.
