Look no further than how tough it is to play against a top defenseman in the playoffs (Chara)
When you have a guy that dominant, pushing 30 mins of ToI...half the game, the other team has to stay on one half of the ice away from him.
The value of a top tier defenseman of that kind is immeasurable. I can't stress it enough. It makes your goalie look all-world and your D corps as a whole look allstar caliber. Get the other guys on the blueline to block some shots and stay disciplined positionally, and you become a very tough team to play against, as opponents' top guys are neutralized.
Only the deep teams with 3.5 lines that can come at you will pose a threat.
But Myers is not even close to there yet.
