1. Adam Mair
2. Rory Fitzpatrick
3. Alexei Zhitnik
4. Miroslav Satan
5. Curtis Brown
Mair is first because of what he brings to the table every night, game in and game out. He is a constant hard worker, a solid forechecker, and he is always willing to go into the corners with anybody.
Fitzpatrick is second because his defensive ability is fantastic and he is rarely caught out of position. I'm waiting for his offensive talents to appear, but certainly he is the most solid defensive defenseman that Buffalo has.
Zhitnik is third because he doesn't get the respect that he deserves from the fans, management, or the league. Alexei regularly plays 24-30 minutes a game and this year he is actually getting shots on net. Alex is solid at playing the body as well as the poke check.
Satan is fourth due to his lack of league wide respect. Miro has gotten 70 points or better the last few years on some mediocre squads. I mean last year Miro had 49 assists on a team that had one goal scorer over 25, who was Satan himself.
Brownie is fifth because of what he brings to the table as a quality two way forward and because of his stellar penalty killing abilities. Curtis proves time and time again his value to this team and he certainly is in the top 5 in penalty killing forwards in the East.
