More important that the other guys don't get to shoot at all. "Clearing the net" is highly visible, but not nearly as impactful. Especially since while you're doing it you risk screening your goalie yourself.

Chara and Weber's real value isn't in "clearing the net". They're awesome at regaining and maintaining possession of the puck.
Using a d-man like crazy is only a good option when that's all you have, no reason to overuse Subban last year with the depth we had on defense.

"clearing the net" is probably the most overrated part of how people here evaluate defensemen.
