Now it gets tough
Lidster very solid underatted d man.....One of Keenan's corp later. Others on this list were flashier but he was solid.
Schneider...Peak he might be the second best d on this list. By my own logic, he should be in front of Lidster but he hung on too long......He was quite a good d with MTL and useful other places but did not age well.
Willie Mitchell solid underrated d man who can play both ways.
I like Babych in my top 5 but there is no way that his peak is any better than Paul Reinhart's 3 year run from 81-83. Paul was the PP QB type that so many teams coveted.
His playoff record is also quite a bit better than Baybch as well even when teams are considered.
