What is this?
You're building a team. You're given the option to choose any of these trio of defenseman to build your core around.

Who do you go for? (ignore cap hit for this exercise)

Will be ranking the Top 15.

Criteria:
2007 Draftees and beyond (let me know if any the prospects on any team's lists is wrong or someone is more deserving)

- - -
Previously Voted Top Trios:
1.) St.Louis: Alex Pietrangelo, Kevin Shattenkirk, Ian Cole
2.) Ottawa: Erik Karlsson, Jared Cowen, Cody Ceci
3.) Phoenix: Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Brandon Gormley, David Rundblad
4.) Washington: John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Dmitri Orlov

Took Columbus, Murray is a franchise Dman, Erixon is a solid 2 way guy as is Savard.

The Jackets have their problems but not on the back end great depth and quality with these 3 guys coming up as well.

Possibly the best 1-10 Dman grouping in terms of overall skill depth and future mix in the NHL right now along with the Yotes.

A lot of good trios here, hard to choose. Went with the Rangers.

LA. Doughty is.. Doughty. Voynov is a top4D, still young and Forbort looks promising.

Doughty is far better than any individual Dman left. LA quite easily

I like the Florida trio, but I'd buy arguments for either of LA or NYR.

Voted Habs but on second thought I'd probably go with the Isles group

L.A. by a fair margin. They've got Doughty, and Voynov's no sloutch either.

Ehh, he's the best, but I wouldn't say "Far better" than McDonagh.

And the gap between Del Zotto and any others listed for LA makes it much closer than you're suggesting.

Exactly my thoughts.

Imo that gap between Del Zotto and Voynov is bigger than the gap between Doughty and McDonagh.
