Well explains the whole slowing down in his game, guy is gold digging

Looking for that early retirement.

And the way Hedman tends to play for Team Sweden, I think I'd rather have Hjalmarsson, although that could obviously change before 2014.
We'll see how Hedman develops, he seem to do well in the KHL currently?

Since this is for 2014, I voted Larsson. I think he'll pass the couple of guys ahead of him currently.

Almost every single Shark fan reading this is shaking their heads. Including this one. I doubt he plays for team Sweden.

Murray was barely a #4 defenseman. He looked slow all year and speedy forwards skated laps around him. Hedman is a decent #1, good #2 defenseman right now. It's not even close.

Every Sharks fan (except the crazy one that compared Murray to Toews last year). And any fan of other teams that watched Murray in the past year.

Surprised how little love for Hedman there is. Seems like he should be one of Sweden's top shutdown guys (and a good compliment to one of the more offensive d-men).

Edler, it's not close. This guy is a top 10 defender in the league.

With this being said, by 2014, It's gonna be Larsson followed by Edler.

Sweden will have the best top 4 in Karlsson, OEL, Larsson and Edler, imho.

I think that's overrating him a little bit, Edler can play like a top10 defender in the league, but that is not the norm for him. Top 15, ya probably but top 10 is pushing it. I put Hedman and Kronwall ahead of him

Karlsson
Weber
Letang
Chara
Suter
Keith
Pietr
Doughty
Edler

If anything he's the high end of top 15 basically squeezing him in the argument of top 10 defender.

Voted Kronwall but don't be shocked if two years down the road Larsson is one of their top 3 if not top 2.

Nobody outside of New York cared about Ryan McDonagh before this year. Now he's considered one of the best young defensemen in the game. Karlsson went from prospect to #1 in the league in one season. It happens quick.

Hamhuis is better than Edler

Oh this is funny...

Kronwall is "Overrated" and not better than Edler or Enstrom...

And yet the only thing Edler holds over him is PP stats, which, considering Kronwall had one less shift (45 seconds) a night on average, isn't that surprising.

Enstrom, on the other hand, holds nothing over him.
