What's everyone's thoughts on defence this year? How would you rank these guys:

1. Ryan Pulock
2. Rasmus Ristolainen
3. Darnell Nurse
4. Nikita Zadorov
5. Josh Morrissey
6. Robert Hagg
7. Madison Bowey
8. Ian McCoshen

I really like Ristolainen. He plays that North American game. He just needs to be more consistent.
I like Gauthier. My response was directed at the comment that he might scare people. He's not really that kidn of player, at least not in the games I have seen him play. What he is is a very good two-way center. I'd be fine with the Oilers taking him.

Zadorov on the otherhand could be very scary. He is huge and seems to live to crush people.
