I can understand that. I was just having a tough time understanding how one of the best defensive defenseman of his time would have an issue pairing with Red Kelly. It was voted upon as the "most puzzling pair of the draft" a couple times.

I think GM's are just looking at Grant as a "puck rushing defenseman" are were not giving any credit to his defensive play as well.

I still don't know what's so puzzling about the pair. Does the understanding of Grant playing the majority of his time with Graham Drinkwater who was an offensive dman change your opinions?
