Housley or Rafalski?

Which would you take...Rafalski(who is probably in his prime right now) or Housley...in HIS prime? Which of these small offensive d-men do you prefer, and why?

Housley and quite handily too. In his prime, he was phenomenal and quite underated especially in his days with the Sabres.

i'm a little surprised that Housley is winning this pretty handedly. I figured that his advantages in tools would be made up by the fact that Rafalski is a little bigger.

Rafalski is a solid defenseman, but Housley was a great one.

I can't believe this poll is closer than the Luongo-Theodore poll.

Housley is a possible HOFer. No way Rafalski will ever even be mentionned for the hall.

This shouldn't be close and that is by no means to slight Brian Rakalski. Rafalski's prime could still be in the future but to this point he is a 0.54 PPG player. For his career Housley was a 0.82 PPG. That's a huge difference when you consider the span of Housley's career. Even if you want to compare apples and apples, through Housley's first 5 years he was an offensive machine (102G, 239A, 341PTS). I know it's a different era but Rafalski's career numbers don't compare (30G, 177A, 207PTS).

I agree, Housley and it's not close. Housley was a great defenseman.

Housley but to me he was always just a glorified winger. Who else has 97 points as a d man and is -13 that year which I believe he was. Housley was just a really good power play specialist not a great d-man. If Coffey is average at best defensively then my question is how do you rate Housley? That depends on how you rate a pylon.
