Don't get me wrong, I think he's pretty good on the PK, and as a fore checker at ES. But at ES in the defensive zone he will go to the wrong man or the wrong place too frequently for me to think he's competent yet. I'd also disagree on Getzlaf - he's significantly better than any of those other players defensively. As is Perry, when he's not playing lazy. Holland had a good game playing the 4C, when he's been at 2C that line is a black hole defensively (granted, it always is, but he's not stood out as the competent one on it IMO).
