I'm not rying to nitpick, but to me "team defence" is a term used to describe the defnce of the entire team including the forwards and "team defenceman" rankings seem to be what you are asking for here.

It's just the way I usually look at it

I guess you're technically correct, but it looks weird if it's "Team defencemen rankings."

Edit: on second thought, I think your way of writing it is better because it is more accurate. I will switch it for the next poll.

I love LA's D.

Everyone plays a good 2-way game. Except Scuderi but he's just a monster defensively.

If its "team" defense were talking about, and not the team with the best collection of defensemen, its gotta be the blues. They had one of the greatest defensive seasons ever by an entire team.

Voted St. Louis. The next 2 should be St. Louis / Los Angeles (pretty close between them)... Vancouver is probably top-5, definitely top-10, but certainly not ahead of those two.

Depends on which sharks fan you ask. Braun and Murray will both get playing time and will battle it out for the spot. I'd go with Murray because he is a very good penalty killer and is one of the only dmen that play physical on our team.

They will be battling for playing time as the #6. I think it should be Murray because he's our only physical defenseman while we have a number of offensive defensemen. However, if Murray is too slow to handle the backend, Braun will be in.

Braun. Murray blows. Braun-Demers is a great pairing.
