Halpren for the Caps, he's returned to his old form under Hanlon...Cassidy really screwed up his game for awhile...cant really name anybody else b/c they all got traded away (grier, kono, bondra)

Lapointe- Is the guy who does all the little things that go unnoticed and is very smart in his own end.

Primeau- If healthy all year could have been a selke nominee. Has a big fram and uses it well and blocks alot of shots on the PP
Can't forget Zhamnov.

Tom Fitzgerald is one of, if not Torontos #1 penalty killer. IMO

I am surprised nobody said Wes Walz. He has got to be in the top three.

Draper and Maltby.

Great penalty-killing tandem and a short-handed threat.

Say what you will about Maltby, he never makes a defensive mistake.

Panthers best PK forwards = Olli Jokinen, Matt Cullen, Jurai Kolnik, and M.Samuelsson...[Eric Messier IR] PK finished 2nd overall this season (amazingly this was the one area the Panthers didn't need Luongo to be the Messiah for).

a team of 12 Artem Chubarovs would never lose a game.

I beg to differ, our pk was nothing special and made tons and tons of errors.

Bulis is the only one worth mentionning even though Begin and Dowd are good.

:lol

You may be right if Gonchar, Blake, Pronger, Zubov, Niedermayer & Leetch were on D and Brodeur was in goal. That team needs to score some goals and Chubarov has hands of stone around the net. Great defensively.

For the Flames it is Stephane Yelle, Chris Clark, Craig Conroy, Shean Donovan, Ville Nieminen, Marcus Nilson & Jarome Iginla that do most of the PK. The Flames have many defensive forwards.

Fedorov is often overlooked as a defensive player. Most forget that he CAN (and actually has) played defenseman in NHL games before. Didn't he win the Selke a couple times??

Preds penalty top penalty killers are Walker and Johnson but Sullivan, Johansson and Legwand also do it some, and all are threat shorthanded. As far as just defensive or two way forwards for us would be Legwand, Walker Hall and Johnson.

The Blues . . . ummmmm . . . yeah.

Petr Cajanek didn't disappoint this year, but I wouldn't call him a bona-fide defensive forward at any time during the season. Jamal Mayers, Dallas Drake and Mike Sillinger all had significant time on the PK and all are more defensively able than offensively, but there's no Selke candidate in the bunch.

I noticed Cory Stillman was getting a fair-sized chunk of PK time this year. I remember the days when fans would rather have Stillman in the box than give the coach even the option of putting him out on the ice. I assume that it means that he's actually gotten better in Tampa, but what do I know? Do you?
