Isn't Pat Dwyer the definition of a bottom 6 player, developed by the Canes? They developed LaRose too. Not to mention Nash and Bowman who are now borderline bottom 6 guys.

The defense is an undeniable trainwreck.
Dwyer is a decent example but Larose is before the timeperiod I'm talking about and honestly i'm not sure he is that effective in the bottom six role. Nash and Bowman are possiblilities but they are hardly established bottom 6ers who are consistently effective. And while they play the role for us, none of the guys you named other than maybe dwyer are even remotely hard to play against or frankly even possess the skills needed by effective bottom sixers. Just because they slot in on our bottom 6 doesnt make them proper effective bottom 6 guys from a league wide perspective.
