I always thought that Matty Ohlund would have been our best, but the eye injury really cost him. So, I'd have to agree, Lumme was pretty well rounded.
If it weren't for his eye he probably could have won a Norris back between 2001-2004. I always felt once the NHL cracked down on obstruction though that due to his lack of foot speed he regressed a lot, but he was one of the greatest defensemen we've ever had over his career. Definitely top 5 on my list and most likely top 3.
Big bad Dana Murzyn. I loved that guy although he was slower than a slug.
Seemed play well against Gretzky for some reason. But that was about it.

Have to agree to disagree.
In terms of duration sure; but Reinhart literally carried the Canucks into the playoffs his first season (very few decent players on the team other than the rookie Linden and of course, the streaky Skriko). Lead the team in points the other season.
