Though he'd be considered the Canes' #1 by virtue of his ESTOI, I don't see him as a league-wide #1. To me, he'd have to play more regularly against opponent's top lines and be more of a fixture on the PK to be considered a #1.

I'm not a subscriber obviously to the school of thought that there are 30 #1 Dmen in the league.
