Same here.

An all star defenceman is much more valuable to a team than an all star forward (barring that his name is either of Gretzky, Lemieux, Crosby, Ovechkin or can fit in with this group, which Vinny CANNOT by a country mile). There are many more elite level forwards playing with in the NHL any given day than there are elite level defenceman. And I don't really see how one poster can claim that all 30 GM's would take Lecavalier over Markov without even thinking about it. Maybe if it were Crosby, Malkin or Ovechkin... but a defenceman of the nature of Markov doesn't exactly pop up on your radar screen every day.
