The top-six defensemen IMHO from 2011: Lidstrom, Chara, Enstrom, Suter, Keith, Weber
yes, Stumpel and Murray helped, but lets not forget who Detroit had at the time...Yzerman, Shanahan, Murphy, Fedorov, etc...so this is really a moot point

you wouldn't put the Norris trophy winner in the top 10 that year? do you just not like Blake or something?
