I like what Martin has done to reshape this teams defensive core. I think Detroit and Anaheim are two of the best in the league, but I dont see Florida ranked that many spots behind them. Im curious to know what others might think of them. And this poll has nothing to do with Bouwmeester leaving as well. As of right now, he is a Panther, and will probably be one until the deadline. And it does include the McCabe for MVR trade. So...
I went top 10. The only two good things about that D is Bouwmeester and Ballard. Boynton, McCabe, and Allen are all overrated.
I know, do you believe all the praise he gets around here.
Seriously how can you call the most heavily criticized player in the NHL overrated? In fact he is underrated if anything, the guy is gets crapped on like he doesnt belong in the NHL when the fact is he is a 25 min NHL d-man on almost every team in the League who can play in any situation. Sure he makes glaring mistakes but the fact is the good far outweighs the bad.
