I never could understand why the top defensemen are always decided by points..what happened to good old defense. Being able to break up a 2-1 or 3-1 blocking shots, being a solid penalty killer, covering the guy in front of the net, knowing where to go in order to give your partner an outlet pass, being able to not just stop a forward making a move but being able to turn the play around the other way....I just dont think that defensemen are noticed for defense it is more about how many points they have and that is not what a solid defenseman is there for. Offense is offense and Defense is Defense players on offense score goals and make pretty plays, a solid defenseman stops the other teams chances and saves goals not about how many goals and assists they have and that always determines things such as all star games or Top Defenseman awards. So my question is who are the teams best "D" in the league not most offensive "D"????????
