Based on what? To be fair he's a fringe (being generous) NHLer.
While he didn't get much ice time last season, Bort to me never looked out of place, and I don't recall him making any significant mistakes. He doesn't make much of an impression while on the ice, but for a defensive defenseman, that's generally a good thing because that type of player generally draws attention by through screwing up. I don't agree that he's a fringe player.
