    Its time for Chabot to get his own thread.

    He hasnt slowed down at all since game 1. and by every measure looks like hes a potential franchise dman out there. His skating and IQ are both off the charts good, and hes got those Karlsson-esque nerves of steel.

    Hes currently leading the Sens in scoring with 15pts/12gp and in TOI. For a second year Dman, this is pretty damn crazy. Had we not seen him dominate the WJC like we did it might be harder to believe. But Im confident enough to say at this point that he is very much the real deal.

    Once he gets stronger and more complete in his own end, which is not a huge area of concern to begin with, he could very easily be competing for Norris trophies as early as next year.

    Sorry, not even the best defensemen of his draft year.

    Sure thing.

    Aside from disagreeing with you, you do also realize that more than one dman from a draft can be super stars right?

    Doughty and Karlsson, ever hear of them?

    Chabot is a stud.

    Chabot has been superior offensively and defensively to Provorov and Werenski so far this season.

    He's very very good. Ottawa's lucky they have great drafting or this season would be a very miserable one for them.

    True. Chabot can perform on both sides of the puck.

    Its pretty much a small miracle that they found a new Karlsson immediately after losing Erik Karlsson.

    He also has that Karlsson charm:


    ....ok maybe not...

    Other than being aggressive offensively they don't relate to each other but I know what you mean

    His continued emergence has definitely made the Karlsson trade a bit more palatable.

    Oh god whatever... The season is 12 games in man, its not an outlandish statement in any capacity if you take your head out of the sand and look at any stat.

    Things could very well change, but lets not pretend that Chabot hasnt been one of the very best dmen in the league so far to start the season.

    Totally agree. Different playing styles aside, the net result is that we have a new sensational dman leading the team in scoring.

    He's better defensively than Karlsson and had more points.

    Ottawa deserves him to be good after losing EK

    Only defender to ever win MVP at WJC.

    Won CHL defender of the year while playing only 34(!!!) games the entire season. Put up unbelievable playoff performance same year 23 points in 18 games +29

    Had rookie numbers similar to EK. I mean.. the guy is no EK but his pedigree screamed franchise defender in the making.

    I think being in the system of a team that already had EK, and with previous bad memories of Ottawa hyping up d prospects that amounted to nothing (Rundblad and Cowen) he was heavily under appreciated across the league.

    He is amazing.

    Not really, EK didnt wanna leave. It was Menlyk that forced and made the situation as sour as it turned out to be. EK himself said even if I re-signed they would have traded me.

    I wish I caught more games, but just from point watching he’s having a phenomal season.

    No shade but I don’t understand why Boston chose to draft Zboril above Chabot.

    He might very well turn out to be the best Dman of the draft.

    15pts in 12 games, that's impressive. It's time to talk about him.

    He's like John Klingberg

    And yet he doesnt have the anywhere near the support that Klingberg does in Dallas (and leading his team in scoring), and plays a more of a two way game imo.

    Its a notch above Klingberg imo. and realistically its closer to Karlsson.
