Those three are waaay off. Campbell has a pretty atrocious defensive game, Zubov has always been good both ways. Same with Edler/Sydor; Edler's D doesn't stack up.

And Hatcher and Kronwall are completely different types of defensemen with different styles. Hatcher's style was to skate slowly through mud and be the fourth-best defenseman on his team, while Kronwall's style is to be a physical two-way defenseman who is one of the league's most feared hitters.

2003-04 Colorado Avalanche

Tanguay - Forsberg - Hejduk

Translates to

Kessel - Giroux - ...Selanne

Boyle - Keith
Niskanen - Giordano

Schneider
Wouldn't it better translate to:
Tanguay - Getzlaf - Hejduk
Kane - Toews - Selanne

Weber - Carlson
