Well thats a positive at least.

For curiosity sakes, what more would you need to be convinced Grant was one of the best defensive defenseman of his time? His LOH, GHL profiles all state he was an excellent defenseman as well that recent article showing how he plays the positioning and the fact that he was the best defenseman and captain of (I think) 3 Cup winning teams?
