To anyone trying to make the point that Byfuglien is not a top-tier defenseman, I question your ability to evaluate talent. He is not a bad defender. The worst you can say about him is that he sometimes gets caught out of position, most notably in transition, but even that has been dramatically improved this year.

He is a one-of-a-kind impact player in the NHL. He brings a combination of size and skill that cannot be matched. The very fact that other teams have to game-plan specifically against him speaks volumes to what he brings. The Jets are a different team without him in the line-up.

He is not just a point machine as some seem to be implying.
