I don't think your top defensive forward is as valuable as your top defenseman. Valuable, for sure, but I think even Pavel Datsyuk, arguably the best two way forward in the league, is not as valuable as a Zdeno Chara. Once again, certainly valuable, but if given the choice between a true elite franchise defenseman and a true elite 2-way forward, I would take the defenseman every day of the week. Obviously it is ideal to have a Selke caliber guy, but I think you can get by with a lesser player in that role moreso than you can with having a lesser player in the #1 defender.
