I would love to see a list of defensemans ppg, gpg, etc. for all drafted Dmen in their draft year and not just a few guys who had absolutely no business being in the NHL. This is why I hate when people go off stats for comparables and not what the player actually looks like when they're playing the game
Reason you dont compare to guys like Weber is because Weber was the exception, not the average. He did a good job compairing though. Look at the players, he did a very good job honestly picking who to compare to. These are guys ranked right where Zadorov is, close to heights and styles of play. Who do you compare Zadorov to then? He isnt a 5'11-6'2 puckmoving defender no matter how you look at it. He's a big guy who likes to hit, and plays solid defense with questionable offense, VERY similar to the players he described in his article.
