I'm posting this for reference purposes only. It's a list of each defenseman who finished top five in Norris trophy voting at least three times during their career.

Obviously this doesn't take into account many important factors (i.e. any accomplishments prior to the first Norris trophy in 1954; playoffs; international tournaments; non-NHL players; quality of competition; etc). Still, if you're aware of the limitations of the data it may be useful.
