Pronger
Chara
Redden
Niedermayer
Lidstrom

A notch below:
Phaneuf (but getting there fast)
Blake
Pitkanen

That's it. And there is no way that Ozo is mentioned with any of those guys.
Babcock will take him to Detroit any moment. After that he would become an elite. Is that what needs to be done to get a proof? Common, the guy anchored the entire Ducks defence at the time when Ranges were subpar (not to say garbage) team. Yes, they had a good goalie back then, but so do Rangers now.
