Guys like Matt Greene, Mark Stuart, Scuds, Orpik, Seidenberg, etc. are all CRUCIAL members to their team. I think those defenders are worth a lot right now.
Yup BIG mobile defenders should be treated like gold.

If you look at the trend, its smaller PMD that can get to pucks beofre forwards. This trend has been set since the last lock out and growing year by year. You can almost see that teams are becoming big up front to bully around these small defensemen.

Going big and mobile now would be wise.
