As long as they are not absolutely brutal defensively, I prefer the dman with the high end offensive skills, like Mike Green in his prime or Doughty. I think Rielly is far more likely to become a player like that vs. a Suter. Dmen like Suter are still very important, but like I said I can't see Rielly becoming a dman like that. I think Finn and Percy are more likely to be similar to Suter.
Who do you guys think is the most defensively skilled dman that is still considered an offensive dman currently?
But the leafs have essentially been really bad defensively for the past decade. That's why I would rather have a Suter then a Yandle. And I agree that Rielly would easily be more of a Yandle then Suter. Finn and Percy...I don't think either will be first pairing dmen, so if they are going to be like Suter, then they will be Suter-lite-lite.
Most defensively skilled dman that is still considered offensive? Chara, then Suter. Though you probably already noticed that I put Suter in high regard. I don't think Weber is defensively as good as the media portrays, Letang is def not as good as Suter, Pietrangleo is a bit overrated and benefits from the team system.
Ive mentioned this before, but I can remember a lot of your avys from a long ass time ago. Kamo's was pic of Schenn smiling, ss2s was hayley williams, lr's was a pic of phaneuf either right after trade or after being named captain, mm's was moginly in leaf logo, Schenn's was a diff pic of Selena, Meow's and Bert's have never changed from what I remember. Hmm who else. CL I remember Einstein but nothing before that one. Everlong's was a racecar with sunset in background. Hurt had a pic of Ron Wilson with that one effect on it a bunch of posters had. That's all I can think of right now.
