Pick a two D pairing.

I was playing espn NHL 2k5 for playstation 2 and somehow managed to get a top four pairing of Pronger+Pitkanen for the top two and Chara+Bouwmeester for the bottom four. Which ones would you pick?

I'm in the minority here but IMO

Chara > Pronger (because of injuries)
J-Bo > Pitkanen

IMO

Chara > Pronger (age, salary, injuries)
Bouwmeester >= Pitkanen.

If healthy, Pronger and Pitkänen is a fairly easy choice for me. When you consider Pronger's injury history it's alot tougher but I still take them by a close margin.

Agree....I find Pronger to be somewhat overrated. I would take Chara over hime any day. J-Bo is also much better and experienced in my eyes then Pitkanen

How about Pronger and Chara?

Chara/J-Bo is the better pairing, btw.

I'd take Pronger over Chara and Pitkanen over Bouwmeester, so this was an easy selection.

The idea was to pair two of the biggest defensive d-man and pair them with up and comming offensive d-man.

and Pronger/Pitkanen is the better pairing imo.

Pronger >>> Chara
Pitkanen > Bouwmeester

Pronger is more proven than Chara. Since Pitkanen is better offensively and more physical than Bouwmeester I go with him.

pronger/pitkanen

if pronger is always healthy, it's easy. since he isn't it's a lot closer. I think chara is better than pronger, but I like pitkanen a lot more than j-bo, so I'll take pronger/pitkanen by a small margin

My vote goes to Chara/Bouwmeester.

Both would be amazing duo's, but Chara is a beast who would let Bouw's natural skills to be showcased.

Pronger is quite possibly the best defenceman in the league when he was healthy... However, I don't think he'll ever completely heal from that heavy wrist injury suffered a few years back.
