    Which Blueline prospect would you build around and why?

    Rules:
    • Any player that is inline with HF prospect criteria is eligible
    • Although, any player over the age of 23 is NOT eligible
    • Any player who has played more then 40 games in the NHL is not eligible

    Also, with that defensemen, which prospects from that system do you see playing with him? Age and rules do not apply to partner.

    Ex: I'd pick Dion Phanuef, and in 5 years I could see him with Rehger or Leopold...
    Ex2: I pick Cam Barker, I pick Seabrook as his blueline partner.
    Ex3: I pick Cobourn, Valabik could be his partner.

    The obvious guys like Barker, Bouwmeester, etc.

    For my Canucks, if Koltsov lives up to his potential, he would be killer with a big, bruising stay at home guy like Allen, down the road.

    Bouwmeester with either Krajicek, Novak (if he regains pre-injury form) or Mezei.

    Krajicek and Bouwmeester on the PP would be killer.

    For the Habs, they're going to build their defensive corps around Komisarek. I could see him playing with Markov or Hainsey, if he turns around his game.

    If Koltsov can develope right then he would be playing with Allen, and damn what a combo it would be!

    For the Stars, I'd take Fransson and pair him with Daley on the PP, Fistric the rest of the time :yo:

    Doug Lynch for the Oilers
    has more potential then Woywitka but Woywitka more of a safer bet, Lynch was an AHL all-star in his rookie pro season and putting up another very good season this year too.

    if Lynch and Woywitka develop into a NHL defensemen they would make a great combo, they have been playing together since their WHL days

    Tyutin and Kondratiev. They have been a pair since juniors and showed why they are a future pair in the AHL this season.
     
  12. I would choose Mark Stuart and pair him with Andrew Alberts or Milan Jurcina. Stuart with Alberts would be a complete shutdown defence pair, and would leave a lot of forwards bruised and beaten.

    Why are you guys picking Bouwmeester? does't anyone read the rules?

    Jay-Bo is not a prospect, so that breaks rule number 1, and he also has 143 NHL games under his belt, so that breaks rule number 3.

    As for my choice, if I were to build a franchise around a D-man based on these rules, I'll go with Phaneuf, and I see him playing with Rehger or Leopold in the future, most likely Leopold.

    In a few years I think Orpik and Whitney.

    Nice defensive pair with Whitney chipping in some.

    Maybe I am an idiot or blind or something, but I think nearly all of you missed the point of this thread. I think you are suppose to pick (who you think is) the top defence prospect in the NHL that you would want to buid around. This has nothing to do with what your favourite team is.

    I say Phaneuf.

    Using the criteria it really comes down to Phaneuf or Suter. So I'll take Phaneuf, he could play with another Flames prospect in Ramholt.

    If Hamhuis is ineligible...my pick would likewise be either

    Suter-Weber

    or

    Phaneuf-Ramholt, with leaning toward Suter and Weber simply becuase i think Phaneuf and Suter are a wash, but I like Weber over Ramholt.
