    I know he was a beast when he came back, but didn't he start badly fading as the year went on?

    As a Bruins fan, and a fan of Krugs game... He's not a top 25 D-man. Maybe, Maybe he's top 35ish.

    Not even sure about McAvoy right now, but a few years from now I can see him as a top 15 potentially. He's a unit.

    Didn’t know Dahlin and Heiskanen were already perceived as top 25 guys

    Ekman-Larsson?

    Also I can think of half a dozen players I'd pick before Parayko.

    McDonagh not being on there is way more surprising than Weber.

    Too much valuation on fantasy with this list.

    Also I wouldn't put Suter on here.

    Pretty terrible assessment of d men right now. Not a bad future projection I guess?

    These are NHL defensemen. Not just Finnish defensemen.

    With you on Krug. McAvoy certainly belongs on the list, though.

    Cant see why you wouldnt have Parayko on this list. The guy has cemented himself as one of the best defensive dmen in the league and played against the oppositions best lines for the Blues' cup run. A 6'5 monster who can skate well, shut down top lines and chip in on offense reliably is easily worthy of being on here.

    Somewhat, yeah, he did. Hard to say whether it was the lack of training camp or if this represents the new normal. A quick look at the list shows three defensemen older than Weber, so it's not necessarily an age thing. Guess we'll see.

    Suter being on the list and Keith being excluded is a joke.

    There’s not many defenders in the league I’d take over Parayko. He’s just an all around monster.

    Problem is that an increasing number of fans value players almost exclusively on points and zone entries. The concept of an elite shutdown defenseman means little to many -- regardless of what the playoffs show.

    Yeah, true. Shattenkirk scored more points than Parayko for the Blues. Parayko is on another planet than Shattenkirk in comparison.

    I wouldn't say badly fading, altought he did slow down a little which happens frequently for players missing a lot of games (strong start then little fade). He had a good year anyway. Will be interesting to see how he does next year with a real summer of training. He was a total beast for his first 20-25 games after coming back.

    There are several more deserving guys than Barrie, Trouba, or Krug.
