but capable of forcing the play into the offensive zone, improving the play of all other players on the ice, and producing more points per 60 minutes of 5v5 icetime then 75% of other demn in the league. "
only saying toby is undersized and often on the shelf is like saying sydny crosby is an injury risk. Yes, he does get injured, but that's hardly the whole story of the player.
It isn't at all dishonest to state that I personally prefer d-men that are of a size that they aren't often physically manhandled to the point that they miss large portions of the past two seasons due injury. In that case that player is indeed unreliable in my view, since he apparently can't be relied upon to be on the roster when he is needed, like right now for example.
It is dishonest however to attempt to paint my position as being anything other than that. Hope that helps.
