You guys are NEVER going to change my way of thinking. I'm all about the defensive defencemen. Guys Like Adam Foote, Scott Stevens, Nickalus Kronwall, Tim Horton, Harry Young, Ben Shutron, Brett Angel, Marc Cantin, Mark Cundari, and Posa are My key type of players to name a few..They shut down guys and put the puck in the net every once in a while.

If you guys want to ridicule a player ridicule the forwards. They are the main point of our production. They are not scoring or getting the points. The defencemen shouldnt be asked to get 100 points a season cause the forwards can't cut it.

Before you guys say it I have Ellis as my pic because he is a diamond in the rough, he can put the puck in net at will but he can shut down opposing players if he really wanted to.
I agree i would rather have a good Defensive Defenseman then a great Offensive Defenceman, i think if you play as a DEFENSEman then thats what should be your number 1 priority unless that is your just that skilled to be good offensively and at the same tim be even better defensively(Ellis,S.Weber,etc).Posa and Sieloff are DFD and Ebert used to be a OFD and was a really bad DFD now hes a solid Two way Defenceman.
