More Hockey Fun – Ranking The NHL’s Best Defencemen

Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 3, 2013

NHL_LOGO_grandeYesterday, Just for fum, I published my 2013-14 list of the Top 10 Forwards in the NHL. Today it is the D-Men which are examined as I try to sort out just who the very best are. The strength of any good NHL teams should begin with a solid core of  defensemen. If you peruse the list of the last 5 Stanley Cup Winners, I would argue that all but one of these teams owed their success to the play of their key defensemen. The lone exception to this rule are the 2009 Pittsburgh Penguins although even with that star-studded team, the steady play of Brooks Orpik and the rest of their defense should not be overlooked. Forwards tend to receive all the glory: but it is the shutdown  D-men who log all the important minutes.

With that in mind, I have constructed my top ten list of the NHL’s best defenders.
