    Petrecki could warrant a nomination.

    The safest is definately Alzner. Petrecki is also a good one but not as steady as Alzner IMO.

    Alzner followed by Ellington. They both spent all year in the WHL playing against the top offensive players of the other team.

    12/07/2006 - Big man on defense is one of the most perplexing defense prospects I have seen in a while .. at six-foot-five you expect a big shutdown, physically punishing defenseman but that is not the case .. if anything, is a power play specialist ..

    Red Line compares him to Brent Seabrooke.

    He's a offensive defenseman... :teach:

    Says the Canucks fan..........


    Seriously, Alzner is miles ahead of anyone right now. He's just so smart. He won't run you into the glass and rub your face in the ice like Petrecki will, but his decision making and smarts are top notch.

    Alzner by quite a bit.

    It's hard to say at this point obviously, but a good number of the names in this thread could lay claim to that title when everything is said and done. Still not a huge fan of the Ellington pick by the Canucks, but you can't really argue with his play this past season I suppose.
     
  16. Kevin Marshall is a really good stay at home dman.

    Calgary's Keith Aulie - 6'6", decent skater, great hockey sense.

    I'm hoping that someday we'll say Denis Reul is the best stay at home defenseman from this draft.

    I wouldn't call Plante a stay-at home d-man at all, nonetheless one of the best stay at home dmen in the draft.

    IMO, Alzner, then Ellerby and Petrecki.

    I was going to throw his name out, but didn't want to look like a homer. He's a pretty pure defensive defenseman right now and needs to develop his offensive game some more, but he's pretty solid in his own zone and no fun at all to play against.
