But what does age have to do with how a defender is rated? Was Lindstrom not a top5 defender last year cause he was 39??
Who is this Lindstrom you speak of?

Age definitely does have a factor IMO. Lidstrom lost a step last year, even though he was really good, he wasn't as good as he was in his prime years. Staal's mobility makes we pick him over Mitchell. Just my opinion though.
