As some one else pointed out, what about Barret Jackman as a 7th D and just bumping someone else up?
My quess on Jackman is that with only one NHL season under is belt and missing most of this last season they will be looking at him for future teams. This is only if his play this next season continues to mature. He will more than likely be with a new and less skilled D partner. Al MacInnis had to have been a tremendous mentor.

You should be really proud that your number one defencemen is the Canucks number three defencemen. The Canucks didn't even finish in the top 5 last year.

You saying Boucher to team Canada is silly. I think the Jason Smyth is a similar player to Boucher. You are a complete Dallas Homer.

At the begining of last season there was an article in The Hockey News that stated Hannan and Aucoin are the most underated defensman in the league.

Hannan does not play clutch and grab. All of you are making that assumption based on the pictures from the Sharks/Av's series. Forsberg may be one of the greatest hockey players ever but he tries ever trick (cheat) in the book and then points the finger at the opponant like they were the one who started the crap. Hannan is a very smart player and he did not let Forsberg get away with it. This frustrated Forsberg (ie. all the stupid penalties he took) any clutching and grabbing you saw Hannan do was in response to Forsbergs clutching and grabbing.

We Sharks fans know that the rest of the hockey world pays little or no attention to us. As good as our team was this last season it was frustrating to get so little press.....but we are used to it. Most of our games start at either 9:30 or 10:30pm in most areas of North America so it is hard for me to imagine that many of you have seen all that many Sharks games. What few games you have seen, how much attention did you focus on Hannan? Not much I imagine, why would you? He has been underated the last few years and has gotten better and better with every game he plays. His great play did not begin in this years playoffs, if you want to pinpoint when his game started to advance you have to go back to the 2002 playoffs where he was also extremly effective against Forsberg in only his second full season in the NHL.

You can attack my comments all you want. But do you really have that much more hockey knowledge than the gentleman who picked Hannan. If so maybe you should contact team Cananda and have Gretzky removed for his lack of knowledge.
yeap, i 2nd that opinion.

There are 29 other teams in the NHL that aren't the Dallas Stars, you know.

This is a joke. Fire Lowe and Gretzky.

Aucoin would have been a better pick.

The main issue with Jackman, IMO, would be that he just missed a season and assuming everything went according to schedule, just finished recovering within the last few weeks. Had he played a full season at the same or higher level that he did in his rookie year, he would have deserved a spot.
