While I would potentially agree with you, if you were using a different criteria for what makes a #2 defenseman, I'm wondering if you don't think Dennis Seidenberg is a #2 defenseman. He has broken 30 points twice in his career, and was on pace for a respectable total this year, but the man rarely breaks 25 points in full seasons, yet I think he's a fine #2 defenseman, and that's on a team in the cup finals.

My point is, while Brodin isn't probably there yet, he is close, and points have nothing to do with it (though his offense is nearly as good as Seidenberg's already).
