<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Garak</b></div><div>Sure. Points aren't everything, though. He contributes to offense a lot in ways that aren't reflected on a basic stats sheet, i.e. shutting down play and starting transitions back to offense, moving the puck up the ice, keeping pucks in the offensive zone and moving them into open space for offense to build off of, activating to draw players out of position, etc. There is a reason why he is so attractive to other teams, and his defense first style is a huge part of that. It is something a lot of teams are missing. Most "good" dmen would have absolutely awful goal differentials if they weren't always trying to score. I am of the opinion that dmen should play defense, and a "lack" of offense doesn't make them any less valuable.

Also, you can literally only have a 23 man roster. Having all of these players and prospects in your system does nothing if you can't put them on NHL ice.</div></div>
