Voted LA.

Top 5 vs top 5 I think the Rangers have the best, but they don't have a true #6. Bickell is nothing more than a 4 minutes a game fighter. That hurts them a bit.

Rangers, by far actually.

After looking at Nashville's top six, they're highly underrated. I know they lost Suter but damn, that's still a pretty good lineup.

I see you edited. I saw Philly and nearly had a heart attack. Their defense is awful this year.

Don't understand the love for NY they have no real top end talent and nothing special for 5-6 guys. A good top 4 but c'mon.

Dallas will have Dillon in the top 6 instead of Rome.

Went LA. NYR closely behind, then St. Louis and Vancouver.

OTB pick but I have Winnipeg at 5th. Surprisingly deep and once Trouba gets up there, I think they'll have the best top 4 in the league. Even now though, they're still a top five defense IMO.

Rangers, but to be honest it's all pretty close, and coaching/goaltending would likely make a lot of team's defense look better than it is.

McDonagh, Staal, Giradri are all arguably #2 dman. May not put up the most points but wow that are fantastic defensively.

Ryan McDonagh is real top end talent. Not sure how this is even still up for debate

Not sure where the logic is coming from that the Rangers can have a better top five but lose because of their sixth...

Not sure how a team without an amazing #1 and Bickell and Stralman as their third pair can be winning.

Top 3 should be LA, Boston, and St. Louis.

Rangers

They dont have a legit standout #1 Dman like Doughty, Karlsson, Weber, Chara, etc but they have the best defensive depth.

Stralman was really solid for the Rangers down the stretch actually.
