Staal a top physical shutdown defenseman in the league? Staal and Stralman together a physical shutdown pair?

Gotta agree to disagree with you on both points and there are quite a few defensemen throughout the league that I would categorize as more physical than Marc Staal is.
In fact, all of our defensemen are basically clones of one another with all of them falling into the finesse category.
