Philipe Boucher

Here's my rough, resorted list. Didn't really spend much time going through it.

Jay Bouwmeester
Mike Komisarek
Sergei Zubov
Johnny Oduya
Francois Beauchemin
Dennis Seidenberg
Mattias Ohlund
Derek Morris
Nick Boynton
Philipe Boucher
Jordan Leopold
Dmitri Kalinin
Darryl Sydor
Kurtis Foster
Christian Backman

I think that Komi and Bouw are both overrated but I don't think there's anyone else to put ahead of them.

Jaroslav Spacek >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Dmitri Kalinin and quite a few others listed above.

People underrate Greg Zanon and Steve Montador as well. And I don't watch many Stars games, but isn't Sydor shot? I could be wrong.

I didn't go through the effort of adding anybody, too lazy to go through the UFA list. I just resorted the ones he gave.

Mara. I wouldn't want to include Boucher on any list; he's been reduced to a #6-7 defenseman.

just a suggestion but if you're aware of what they made, it wouldn't hurt to add what they made last year, and what you're estimated salary they'd make this year would be.

Any list with Christian Backman should be automatically thrown out. He was terrible on a team starving for an offensive defensman last year.

Is Zubov coming back I thought he was going to retire due to injuries?

You would be extremely correct in that observation.

It isn't for sure what is happening with Zubov just yet, he has indicated he wants to play next year.

At least Sydor didn't look like a deer caught in the headlights. Backman is terrible.

SYdor should be no where near a top 50 defenseman list, let alone a top 15.

Correction, Sydor and the word top should not be in the same sentence from this point forward!

Maybe if it's alphabetical and you want to put the letters that aren't part of the English alphabet before the actual alphabet, as his name is Mattias Öhlund.

He's only solid now. I think I'd take most of the younger UFA defensemen over him. Some team will overpay for him.
