Postma is very underrated on these boards. He is a solid bottom pairing guy already, and has more upside in him. His defensive game is not nearly so bad as people make out, and he was rarely used in his bread and butter situation in Winnipeg (the powerplay).

Postma is 6'3'' and a defenseman, whereas Leipsic is 5'8'' and a forward. Not sure why Postma would even be in the discussion? Leipsic could be another Justin Azevedo, or Brendan Gallagher.
I agree on Postma. His mistakes (which seemed to become less frequent and impactful as he played more) are expected for a rookie NHL defenseman. What he does have is size and offensive instinct. It very well may take him a couple/ few more years to reach the potential he possesses. He still could end up being a very good NHL defenseman.
