Best Defensive D-Men

Pretty simple. Who are the best shutdown D-men in the league? Consider offense meaningless for the time being.

I miss Matt Greene. Not saying he's the best defensive defensemen out there, but I miss him on the Oil.

Willie Mitchell has looked pretty damn effective still.

Marc-Edouard Vlasic.

Yes, I do realize I'm a homer.

Bryce Salvador has been an absolute beast all season for the Devils.

Not saying he's the best, but he has to be up there.

If you say he's Croatian, I'll believe you, but "Willie Mitchell" is the least Croatian name you could possibly come up with.

As for d-men, I'd go Chara. Also, Weber/Suter/Mitchell/Girardi/Hamhuis/Pietriangelo. And lest we ever forget the Ageless One, Nicklas Lidstrom.

Also, Tomas Kaberle.

Vlašić is Croatian by heritage and Mitchell's mother is Croatian.

Offense aside, it's no secret Chara is probably the best along with guys like Weber.

Smid is pretty good.
Lots of hits, blocked shots, nitty gritty attitude.
