I guess you can. But how much do the best Pure Shut down defensman in the league make?
Lots of these guys still put up 30+ points.
"tremendous upside" for me is a guy who can play at both ends. I don't think anyone would argue that Willie Mitchell ever had tremendous upside. Good player, good shut down player, but a guy like Subban and Doughty have tremendous upside because they put up numbers and do what we hope Tanev can do ie. shutdown the opposition.
