The days of the slow defensive defenseman are gone.
He is a liability that looks like a strength.
He blocks a ton of shots because he cannot clear a puck out of the zone.
The speed of the game has passed him by and he is now a relic.
In the days of obstruction where you could hold forwards he had value, no more.
