Hamilton. I think he is on the cusp of becoming a superstar.

Larsson has a weight problem. Future Byfuglien?

It is close though they are all going to be great. Larsson may not be playing on the PP right now, but he is developing real nicely. His 5 on 5 game is improving significantly. I can see him taking major steps forward offensively within the next 2 seasons. Schulz is the best right now, but he is also 3 years older and is on a much worse team.

Maybe in the future as all 3 have had a totally different path to the NHL and are at different experience levels right now.

Anyone who doesn't pick Larsson is crazy. Larsson has shown he'll be able to play at the NHL level with a lot of icetime.

The other two seem to have great futures, but not as proven.

McDonagh and Schultz played together at Wisconsin (along with Gardiner and Hobey finalist Brendan Smith) and Schultz is only a year younger.

Both players played three seasons for Wisconsin, Schultz leaving two years after McDonagh. I think McDonagh is certainly a valid inclusion given that information.

Who cares where they played or what their credentials are? The OP chose three players and that's the way it is. Are people seriously complaining about something like this?

I don't think OP was ever claiming that this thread was about every young defensemen you could possibly build around. He's asking which out of these 3 we'd pick. It's baffling that this requires explanation.

I picked Larsson - even though he started the season off as healthy scratches for several games, he has become the Devils' best defender.
