I am not getting why there's no love for Nigel Williams. The kid is 6-foot-4 230 pounds, so he's huge.

In the OHL, he had 36 points in 46 games and then 46 points in 67 games. In those years, he had 92 and 100 PIM.

He had a very solid season in the OHL with 21 points and 55 PIM in 70 games. I haven't seen him play, but he got decent points for someone his size, so he must have decent skill for a big, tough defenseman.

He may not have the best hockey sense, but I think that with the right coaching, he may become a top-4 defenseman.

A similar argument applies to Valentenko joining the voting. I think he should be added.
