Agreed 100%. Heshka is maybe the top scoring defenseman, definitely not the "better dman". He's zero defensively. Now, in the KHL, due to the style of the game, it can still be not too much of a liability, but there is a reason if he didn't do much in NA.

However, we beat them at WJC every year, that's true, but then we fail. Our system right now lacks in "middle age" players. I think it's not an easy stuff to address.
