Top D for the 2013 Season

So who will be the best defenseman in the league this season?

Expect a big drop in terms of talent as 3 of the best in the CHL (Beaulieu, Gormley and Ellis... Roussel too) will not return leaving a scarcity of true #1 D left.

I think we can all agree Xavier Ouellet is the best defenseman this season, and one of the best players overall. He makes the BBL D. But who is the second best, or third? Post your opinions on the best blueliners for the '13 season.

1. Ouellet
T-2. Abeltshauser
T-2. Lefebvre
T-2. S. Carrier
5. Fournier - Golden55 convinced me. I really like Fournier, and will one of the leagues best D at 19/20 too.

Bourret, Poulin, Brouillard, Beaupre, Gagnon , Morin, Blain, Narbonne, Melindy, Gagne and Durepos get Honorable Mention, I just don't know where to rank them

I'm listing only those we are sure they'll be in the Q next year...

1. Xavier Ouellet (no contest)
2. Martin Lefebvre (a really underated D)
3. Konrad Abeltshauser (the German tower will be a force this year)
4. Dillon Fournier (He'll be the best D in RN, he's really reliable)
5. Keven Gagné (His skating is his main force, I see him becoming a PPG player as well as being the best D in his team)

If there is a lockout you could see names like Gauthier-Leduc and Ellis coming back, which would be exciting but I would agree with your lists above, mine looks similar:

1- Xavier Ouellet
2- Konrad Abeltshauser
3- Martin Lefebvre
4- Dillon Fournier
5- Kevin Gagne
6- Samuel Carrier
7- Mathieu Gagnon
8- James Melindy
9- Patrick Downe
10- Jonathan Narbonne

HM - Poulin, Durepos, and if Clarke screwed his head on a little better he would be top 5, but I do not see that happening
Next ones - Matt Murphy, Samuel Morin and Nikolas Brouillard

Fournier will light up the league !!!

I agree though Ouellet will be #1, no contest.

1.Xavier Ouellet
2.Martin Lefebvre
3.Dillon Fournier
4.Konrad Abeltshauser
5.Kevin Gagné

May have forgotten some, and after that a list would be possible based on last year, but there's really just so much young players that could progress tremendously and older players that could take that next step that I'd rather not try that before the camps are at least started.

Beauprés won't be back.

Racine isnt top-8 I don't think he brings enough offense, he's just below Gagnon and Brisebois who will put up 50+ pts

As for Gagné as some others have pointed out, he is a rock and as an overrager will surely dominate the league at both ends
