Before he put up 16 goals last season, he was being recognized for becoming a top defensive D in the league. Even if his offense were to dry up, he'll remain a very good defensive player (which is important for playing defense, guys).

Wideman and Carle can both be nightmares defensively at times, but overall are 'OK' at defense.

Garrison's overall game is more effective and valuable, and he's cheaper to boot (although obviously took a hometown discount).

Almost inclined to say Jagr due to the 1-year term. Same cost as Jokinen, but Olli's play could drop off in the 2nd year and having him in your line-up means one of your top 2 Cs isn't very good at faceoffs. So you get Jagr for a year and then have the $4.5m freed up next year when you know what the cap would be at.

For our team, I do probably prefer Hudler, but it really depends on how he adjusts to a new team as we've only seen him on one NHL team so far. But his previous adjustment to new teams in the AHL and KHL suggest it could work out great.
