Developing defensemen

Developing defensemen seems to be Nashville’s thing. I’ve always known that to be true but didn’t realize how true it actually was until I started really looking into it.

Here’s a list of defensemen that Nashville developed. Not all were drafted by Nashville but none had experience with any NHL team prior to Nashville and most spent some time with the Admirals first.

KImmo Timenon
Karlis Skrastins
Greg Zanon
Dan Hamhuis
Ryan Suter
Shea Weber
Kevin Klein
Victor Bartley
Alexander Sulzer
Jon Blum
Ryan Ellis
Cody Franson
Roman Josi
Marek Zidlicky

That’s kind of insane, I’m not even counting Mark Eaton as he did play a bit for Philly before going to the Admirals.

I didn’t count Ekholm either, not yet anyway.

Did I leave anyone out?

If we could have kept all our blueline would be insane.
