He's not considered a "top" defensive forward in terms of all time. He was one of the better ones in the many years that he played however.
I think he was one of the first in the new guard of defensive forwards. He showed that you didn't have to hit everything in sight, that you didn't have to fight and get under the opponents skin to be considered effective in all 3 zones. Very similar to how the better two way players are today.
