But that's because the Norris Trophy is for the defenceman who has "demonstrated the greatest all-around ability" at the position. Hence why defensive defencemen like Derian Hatcher and Scott Stevens never won it.

"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
