It's a well-rounded D-core that provides ample offense as well as some occasionally inconsistent defense. Thankfully we have good goaltenders.

I'd say it's a good defence. Not top 5 in the league or anything, but top 10-15? absolutely.
Please list 10 teams with better d-cores.
Looking over each team, I'd can say that 1 or 2 teams have better d-men, and another 1 or 2 teams are very close to the Canucks d-men.

I can say that the Canucks easily have a top 5 defense in the league as long as Garrison plays like he did last season.
