HF TOP 60 ranking: Defencemen #32

Now that the season and playoffs are over, I thought we'd do an "HFboards ranking" for each position.

So basically, who (of the following) is the best defenceman in the NHL? ie. which Dman would you want on your team for next year only? (independent of their respective salary)


Vote away.


Ranking so far

1. Lidstrom
2. Chara
3. Pronger
4. Niedermayer
5. Weber
6. Markov
7. Gonchar
8. Keith
9. Bouwmeester
10. Green

11. Boyle
12. Timonen
13. Phaneuf
14. Zubov
15. Kaberle
16. Martin
17. Streit
18. Rafalski
19. Regehr
20. Suter

21. Seabrook
22. Wideman
23. Kronwall
24. Burns
25. Souray
26. Visnovsky
27. Campbell
28. Vlasic
29. Pitkanen
30. Coburn

31. Volchenkov

Komisarek

On the same level as Volchenkov when healthy, and has a mean streak.

It's Kevin Bieksa

If he didn't have a temper and a reputation for taking bad penalties, he'd be top-25. As it stands, he's a decent defensive D-man when not in the box, and a consistent 40+ point guy who can QB a #2 PP unit, or a #1 unit when necessary. That's as of last season. He's still young and will probably improve in all the aforementioned aspects.

I know that he won't get even a hint of consideration for top 60 but Dennis Grebeshkov will be a top 15 d-man within 2 years. I'm not a pie-in-the-sky assessor of Oiler talent but he is an exceptional talent and a future #1 guy on the Oilers.

kevin bieksa he is a two way defenceman who put up 40 points when every year he played at least 70 games in he occasinaly drops the gloves mostly never losses in fights has a good shoot and can play on the power play on both units and i think he should have gone a couple spots earlier and add alex edler

Keith Ballard is underrated.

I voted for him, Bieska isn't a bad choice either. Erik Johnson is good, but he don't deserve to be #32 on that list since he played only 1 season, I think there is a couple of dman better than him left on that list.
