This is similar to the recent thread about the best defensive defencemen, except this time it`s about the worst. I`m talking mainly about guys who had long careers in the NHL as opposed to players who were only in the league briefly. Also it`s pretty common for a young blueliner to be weak defensively in his early years but get better (i.e. Larry Murphy), but I`m looking for the players who were lousy in their own end throughout their careers. The three main ones that come to mind are: Bryan Berard Sandis Ozolinsh Reed Larson All those players were highly skilled offensively, which makes sense because if a defenceman is bad defensively, he better bring a lot of offence if he hopes to stay in the NHL. So, who would be your choices? I`m sure a lot of people will say Paul Coffey and Phil Housely, but from what I`ve seen those two were not nearly as bad as reputations suggest.
