DD. Pietrangelo. Eric Karlson.

And then... ???

Bogo, MDZ, Luke Schenn, John Carlson, Sbisa, Josi, Myers are all in the second tier. The homer in me would put Slava up in there at the top of the second tier based on current play (realizing there are others who have more games played).

Kings did well to get 2 Top 4 D from one draft.
For now, I'd still put Myers ahead of him, and definately Carlson. He's very underrated. Del Zotto would be an interesting debate. The rest, yeah, I'd take Voynov over. Schenn I like, but he's way overrated. That happens when you are an 18-year-old cracking the Toronto roster.

No, but you implied it.

Let's not twist things here. According to you, his first NHL season is 2005-2006 when he actually only played 22 games and was in the minors for the rest of the season. If you want to go based on his first two FULL NHL seasons, which would be more accurate of the number you stated, he had a ppg average of .45

Also of note, Voynov was getting 18:32 in ice time last year per game (his rookie year) while Mike Green was getting 15:29 in his first full NHL season.
