Best D-man in Draft

If the ducks take a D-man in the draft - who do you want and why?

I don't.... Murray is obviously the front runner.... And he will be gone. Our pick range indicates Forsberg or Galy due to other teams bpa options. If we HAVE to take a D man it should be Dumba.

I want Yakupov or Galchenuyk, but Murray would be the best choice as a d-man, but we wil have chance for him only when we win lottery, so my second and more probable option is Reinhart...

Personally I want Trouba. Or Dumba...he's such a wild card I flip on him almost every hour. Murray is basically Fowler if you took away some of Fowler's offensive talent and used that talent to boost defensive skills. Rielly shouldn't even be an option, know how Green is a defensive pylon? He was better than Rielly at the same age.

I say the best is Murray if I had to rank them considering upside and overall talent it would go like this

Murray
Dumba
Trouba
Rielly
Reinhart
Ceci

Rielly has boom potential, but just not in a way that would work for Anaheim. Trouba and Reinhart don't have as much upside as Murray or Dumba but they're the safest picks.

Trouba at WJC...just made my jaw drop every time he was on camera. His WJC performance was IMO more impressive than Fowler's and Trouba was USA's youngest player. Easily their best. He's just so smart, so strong, and he plays well at both ends of the ice. The Fowler but with an edge comparison is pretty apt. He's Fowler if Fowler was a 2 way shutdown defender.

No it doesn't.

We'll be lucky if Montreal and Toronto go for defense. Odds are Forsberg will be the only forward available to us short of a trade or lottery win.

I wouldn't mind Forsberg one bit. Hes ranked top 6 in almost every scouting report, including Craig Buttons projection of 3rd overall. I would choose him easily over the available D man when we pick... Assuming the draft goes the way it's said it's going.

I think it could be Reinhart. Big, mobile, smart, everything you're looking for in a defenseman. Biggest knock on him seems to be he's not as physical as you'd like from a guy that size, but it's not really a bad thing, too many people confuse physicality for defensive play(just as they do speed for offensive play). Could be the total package.

Probably is Murray, though. Although, it bothers me that I've seen some say Murray's potential is a 2 or 3 guy, whereas the same rankings had the other dmen have top two potential. Could be nothing, though, the guy sounds like a keeper.

The thread title and the OP's question are two different things. I answered the question posed in the thread, which based on my vast several-hour youtube-fest, is Dumba.

Yup. I voted based on the title, because Murray was included. Based on the OP's question, Murray really shouldn't be in the poll.

Dumba, if he can grow a little more he'll be a beast
Trouba is good but he'll take to long, and I don't sense alot of offensive upside in him
Haven't seen Ceci, but people have mixed opinions

I know you were watching WJC too. The kid was shooting from every angle on the point, his breakout passes were crisp, and he rushed the puck just like Fowler.

He did not rush the puck like Fowler at all, his skating ability is not close...

It's rare that anyone is. Okay. Better comparison, Sbisa.

Your Dumba link does not work.

And if Trouba plays like Jack Johnson, I don't want him. Johnson is a weak A, no defense overpaid turnover machine. Poor Columbus.

You can find the Dumba link by going to the main root site. Basically it is a WHL fan salivating over him. At least JJ played much better at the end of the year in Columbus for their sake.

Jack Johnson is by far one of the worst comparisons I've heard in a draft in a while.

ready Murray
upside Dumba
safe Reinhart

My choice would be Murray who can be great. Dumba has too much to be concerned about. Reinhart would be ok as well.

Damn, Murray would be the one paired with Schultz
