Phoenix and it is absolutely no contest. They made the conference finals with a garbage roster (on paper according to HF mind you), check any pre season polls Phoenix would be ranked 28-30. Mike Smith and Ilya Bryzgalov look like ****ing Patrick Roy out there,

Team defense doesn't necessarily mean their actual defense was great. It's a good defense, but definitely not better than Sharks or Blackhawks on paper, and that's what we are judging by. In that case, the Devils should be right behind them in your logic.

Chara is a tremendous defensemen, but after that... Yeah, they aren't bad, but they aren't great either.

It's about how they click as a unit. It's not all just about personnel, at least in my opinion.

I think Phoenix is top 3 in the league, Michalek as your 5th defenceman is pretty insane.

He's their fourth best defenseman. I think you counted Ekman-Larsson as two.

Very good defensive awareness, modest offense. So yeah, above average.

EDIT: what about Ference, Boychuk, McQuaid, and Hamilton?

Dennis Seidenberg is average at best? please...

Also Boychuk and Ference are pretty solid defenders

McQuaid is what he is... A good bottom pairing guy but thats about it. He can play pretty good D (but like almost literally no offense) and is an absolute monster when he fights

Hamilton could be really good so I think Boston probably got a couple extra votes cause of his potential.

Really Im sure most people voted cause Chara... If you take him and Seids out its a very solid but not great D-corps

Which was my point. A "solid, but not great D-corps" is all the way at #5.
