In all seriousness, Guptill. Could see him as a perfect compliment on the 3rd line to Eakin and Vincour in a couple years.

Bystrom next for me. His potential alone could've put him in the top 10, and I think had we known more about him, he'd probably be up there.

Then finally Molin. Not that he's not good or anything, just that everyone else is better.

Went with Bystrom, he seems to have all the tools to become a successful top 4 defenseman.

I think it's safe to say the next three will be Bystrom, Guptill, Molin. Not necessarily in that order.

Guptill followed by Bystrom seems to be the common theme here and that is what i am choosing as well.

It's really gonna be a log jam in the future if he does. Daley, Goligoski, Larsen, Oleksiak, Nemeth, Dillon, and Bystrom could all be top 4 defensemen. Not counting on all 4 to hit that potential, but even still, it's tight.

If you play your cards right, teams tend to pay more via trade for a good defenseman so that could be a huge plus.

I'd be surprised if Daley is still here by the time Bystrom is ready.

Guptill. next are Molin, Bystrom, and Sceviour. Klingberg perhaps after that. I like some of his game, but his weaknesses are glaring, IMO.

Guptill, Klingberg, Molin, Bystrom, Vance.

Guptill is too good to be this far down but at least I can stop voting for him now.

I'm going to start voting for Besko. Haven't given up on him yet, even if it's unlikely he ever plays an NHL game for the Stars....

Why is that? You think he'll get traded before his contract is up?

There is absolutely no way we can say Bystrom is a guarantee already. Simply hasn't proven enough.

Don't think he's saying Bystrom is a guarantee or anything.

Not sure how else that quote could be interpreted. Implies when, not if. Or maybe I'm just reading it wrong.

Heh, I was gone for a couple of days and missed 2-3 polls. Looks decent enough. Going with Guptill, the most obvious choice at this time.

Yea maybe. I think if our D-core pans out how management is expecting it, he won't have a spot.

Goligoski-Nemeth
Oleksiak-Larsen
Dillon-FA/Bystrom/Daley

I have a feeling Bystrom might be a longer term project, maybe not coming into the league until he's 22 or so. Which would coincide with the last year or two of Trevor's contract. If all 5 of the other spots are taken, I could see Daley being moved in the final year of his contract to make room for Bystrom in the top 6.

Or maybe Dillon/Oleksiak/Goose someone will be traded before then. Impossible to say 3-4 years down the line. Someone's going to get moved before Bystrom is NHL ready though I believe.

Nah Bystrom's definitely not a sure thing, didn't mean it like that. I was mostly agreeing with you about the logjam, and just saying I would see Trevor being moved if Bystrom actually becomes NHL ready. Assuming no other D-man is traded before then.

Ah, that makes more sense.

I'll just toss in my own take on the future D pairings:

Goligoski - Oleksiak

Oleksiak could end up being a Girardi type defenseman, or at the very least like Hal Gill. He's not gonna be paid to put up points, that's Goose's job (I see him rebounding and putting up ~40-45 points a season).

Nemeth - Larsen

Larsen seemed to play his best hockey with Fistric by his side. Nemeth, to me, is pretty much a bigger and better Fistric, one who won't look a spot out of place in the top 4. I think this pairing will end up as quite a dominant combo, with Larsen bringing out a bit of Nemeth's offense (nothing much, Daley's production at a max) while Nemeth brings out Larsen's physicality, which we saw when he was paired with Fistric.

Dillon - Bystrom/Klingberg

Same idea as the other two pairings. If I were setting the lineup, I'd have one offensive defender (Goose, Larsen, Bystrom) paired with a defensive defender (Oleksiak, Nemeth, Dillon (more of a two-way guy, though)), and I think that'd work out pretty well for the most part. On the PK, just put two of the defensive guys out, and vice versa on the PP.

In a perfect world, though, we trade Goligoski and Sinitsyn takes his place.

I'd say Goligoski's future is tied to the development of Philip Larsen, John Klingberg, and Ludwig Bystrom.

Those 3 are the most likely candidates to become scoring defensemen. If two them reach their potential it could push Goli out.

With Daley, I honestly think he could end up with another contract in Dallas. He'll never be a great, franchise D, but he seems like the kind of guy you can play with anyone.

I do think though that one of Daley or Goligoski will be gone within three years.

Too close to call this morning. Going to give it a little more time and see if someone pulls ahead by a few votes. If not we're going to need a tiebreaker.
