How I see it:
In my statement, just to be clear, I wasn't talking about potential, although I see some Ryan Suter in XO, he has less potential than all the other D-mam excluding Harrington.
To be honest I don't think Ouellet is better than most of these guys right now. He certainly isnt better than Hamilton offensively... no way. Defensively you might have a point.. I think he brings more to the table than a guy like Harrington.. Ouellet is pretty solid in all department of the game.. and Murphy certainly didn't impress anyone on Thursday night... I don't think Murphy makes it
I think Ouellet makes it as a 7th guy
