Top 4 D if the offense never comes. Top 2 if the offense comes. Top 4 it is. Still a right handed top 4 D is gold in the NHL.
Unless the idea is that his defense will never be good enough to make up his offensive efficiency I don't understand why he HAS to develop his offense to be a top pairing guy. McDonagh isn't exactly Bobby Orr.
