HFBoards TOP 60 ranking: Defencemen #31

Now that the season and playoffs are over, I thought we'd do an "HFboards ranking" for each position.

So basically, who (of the following) is the best defenceman in the NHL? ie. which Dman would you want on your team for next year only? (independent of their respective salary)


Vote away.


Ranking so far

1. Lidstrom
2. Chara
3. Pronger
4. Niedermayer
5. Weber
6. Markov
7. Gonchar
8. Keith
9. Bouwmeester
10. Green

11. Boyle
12. Timonen
13. Phaneuf
14. Zubov
15. Kaberle
16. Martin
17. Streit
18. Rafalski
19. Regehr
20. Suter

21. Seabrook
22. Wideman
23. Kronwall
24. Burns
25. Souray
26. Visnovsky
27. Campbell
28. Vlasic
29. Pitkanen
30. Coburn

still going with Volchenkov

Top shot blocker and hitter in the game. A year ago he wouldve been top 25.

Willie Mitchell.

Check out his amazing even strength numbers:
http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=630933

He's 6th in the league in Goals against per 60 minutes, and none of the guys in front of him (possible exception of Sarich) play against the best guys from the other team.

Obviously, Volchenkov's defensive numbers are hurt by playing in front of a revolving carousal of goaltenders, though.

Add Roszival or Hejda.

Marc Staal isn't better than Erik Johnson.

But as far as #31 goes its Volchenkov
