The point is people say he sucks because he wasn't a #2 defensemen he couldn't handle 22+ minutes a night against top lines but that doesn't mean he isn't a good #4 defense men playing 18-20 minutes against 2nd and 3rd lines.
Why has it sailed? You basically tried to tell us what our center, cant do, when he has done an ok job of it, and you laughed in our faces about it.

I really don't care about the Butler argument, in fact I'd agree he'd be a fine 4-5, but right now, I don't see that as much of an upgrade on what we have right now anyways(Benoit, Lundin). Turris argument is just stupid. Calling Turris a 4th liner makes far less sense than calling Butler a #7. Its ridiculous, actually.
