That's fair. I've seen St. Louis in person 3X this year and Pietrangelo is a very nice player. Take nothing away from him but when I think elite, that's a short list -- Lidstrom, Bourque etc. Right now I see Pietrangelo and MDZ as pretty equal.

Put this in context. MDZ is a 21 year old defenseman having a breakout season. So is Pietrangelo. They both may make the all-star team. MDZ has skills other teams crave. Lock him up for the long term or other teams might come poaching.
