very good, but not great. He is a solid top 4 dman with top pairing potential.

Members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association disagree with you. MDZ 12th best D man last year, Carlson not even top 20.

Not like they're scrubs.

Defensively, they are absolutely scrubs. Definitely not comparable to Staal and McDonagh as shut-down defensemen.

That is a very poor way of judging who #12 is.

3 guys gave him some low rank votes. Ask writers to actually rank the top 20 and you'll get a better idea.

Yep. DZ's offense puts him over the top of Carlson for me, too.
