Zdeno Chara OR Dion Phaneuf

**I'm hoping that fans from the 28 other teams besides the Bruins and Calgary vote.

I wont vote, but if your asking who is better I would take Chara, bring more qualities you want in a #1 defenseman. Who would I take on my team? Phaneuf, the Canucks need a player like him on the back-end.

I'd definitely take Chara for the Avs, he'd bring an immense presence both offensively and defensively for us, hell I was hoping they'd find a way to sign him when he was initially a free agent.

Chara, for sure. The only person in the NHL who comes close to matching Chara's mix of size, defensive prowess, and offensive abilities is Chris Pronger.

Chara is most likely the most overrated defenseman in the NHL. I pick Phaneuf.

Phaneuf is the worst defensive defenseman in the NHL. Throw him on right wing or something, already.

Phaneuf because he is improving a lot and still young, Chara is good in Boston's style but Phaneuf ability allows him to fit many styles of play from many different systems.

I think you mixed up the two in each of these sentences.

Chara obviously.

2 of the most overrated defensemen in the game right now, but I suppose Chara is still better.

I don't think HFboards have ever been less in love with Phaneuf than it is right now...and I'm not saying there is a hate on for the guy...just not some crazy love.

Chara. I've watched plenty of Phaneuf and he makes some borderline retarded plays in his own zone. I'd say he's the most overrated d-man in the league.

It's hard to beat Chara on a one year deal.

That would be Mike "All-Star"(snicker) Komisarek

I pick Chara who's miles ahead defensively, physically, and can contribute as much as Phaneuf offensively.

I love both players but Chara is a Slam-Dunk pick here.

Chara easily. Getting to watch Phaneuf every game now I realize how bad he is defensively. He looks lost out there most of the time.
