What are peoples thoughts on Howell? I originally had him at 3, however he's likely to drop at least one spot in a swap with Johnston.
Only other guy on the list to have a Norris (and I admitted I'm swayed by a bit as he was the last 'defensive defenceman' to win it, and that's my favourite type of player) than Leetch. His peak isn't fantastic (only the 1 1st AST in his Norris year), but his longevity is awesome, still holding the record for games by a Ranger despite playing in an era of 70 game seasons. Only D-man other than Leetch to have his # retired, although as pointed out earlier, with the way the Rangers operate that doesn't mean as much as it could.
Where do others have him? Does the length of his career keep him in your top 5 (assuming he was there in the first place), or does the higher peaks of others push him down the list?
