Team Defence Rankings #1
 
Let's rank the teams' defence based on their top-6.

Machinehead 12-31-2012 11:37 PM

Voted LA.

Top 5 vs top 5 I think the Rangers have the best, but they don't have a true #6. Bickell is nothing more than a 4 minutes a game fighter. That hurts them a bit.

roflstomper 12-31-2012 11:43 PM

1. Kings
2. Rangers
3. Bruins

Next tier : Blues/Caps/Van

Rangers, by far actually.

After looking at Nashville's top six, they're highly underrated. I know they lost Suter but damn, that's still a pretty good lineup.

I see you edited. I saw Philly and nearly had a heart attack. Their defense is awful this year.

PhillyBluesFan 12-31-2012 11:56 PM

Kings
Canucks
Yotes
Blues
Rangers
Bruins

you can put them in whatever order but those are the clear top 6

Phoenix is the best. So deep. So good.

Ummmm....

JerseyGuy276 01-01-2013 12:17 AM

I'm actually gunna go with Washington on this one...

DuckEatinShark 01-01-2013 12:25 AM

I'm going with NY.

BTW, Jason Demers while be playing while either one of Braun/Murray will be healthy scratched.

The Nose 01-01-2013 12:27 AM

Rangers.

Thanks, I'll change it to Boyle, Vlasic, Burns, B. Stuart, Demers, Murray for the next poll.

Thats the reason i didn't vote for the Rangers.

Voted San Jose.

MessierII 01-01-2013 01:14 AM

Don't understand the love for NY they have no real top end talent and nothing special for 5-6 guys. A good top 4 but c'mon.

Prairie Habs 01-01-2013 01:19 AM

Washington

LatvianTwist 01-01-2013 01:22 AM

Dallas will have Dillon in the top 6 instead of Rome.

Went LA. NYR closely behind, then St. Louis and Vancouver.

OTB pick but I have Winnipeg at 5th. Surprisingly deep and once Trouba gets up there, I think they'll have the best top 4 in the league. Even now though, they're still a top five defense IMO.

Vankiller Whale 01-01-2013 01:33 AM

Rangers, but to be honest it's all pretty close, and coaching/goaltending would likely make a lot of team's defense look better than it is.

McDonagh, Staal, Giradri are all arguably #2 dman. May not put up the most points but wow that are fantastic defensively.

Ryan McDonagh is real top end talent. Not sure how this is even still up for debate

Wingsfan2965* 01-01-2013 03:18 AM

Not sure where the logic is coming from that the Rangers can have a better top five but lose because of their sixth...

capitalsrock 01-01-2013 03:36 AM

Not sure how a team without an amazing #1 and Bickell and Stralman as their third pair can be winning.

Top 3 should be LA, Boston, and St. Louis.

Gritzky98 01-01-2013 03:41 AM

Rangers

They dont have a legit standout #1 Dman like Doughty, Karlsson, Weber, Chara, etc but they have the best defensive depth.

Stralman was really solid for the Rangers down the stretch actually.

Nyr.
