Dion never was an 'elite defenseman'. He'd still be in Calgary if he were. On a good team Dion is a 4 or 5. He's the Leafs best defenseman which doesn't say a lot for the rest of the Dmen. If you can get your head around the fact of Dion's positioning on a good team then you can actually see where the Leafs real problems lie. It's sure not goaltending but rather a group of defensemen who are not up to NHL standards.
