    A follow up poll. I think he's #3 for the avs clearly behind Toews and Makar, he reminds me of Kerfoot but on defense very vanilla skills. Personally I'd like to see Timmins get some of his offensive opportunities cause he is better at running offense from the blue line.

    I didn’t realize Alex DeBrincat posted on these boards, congrats on a great season, but you and Girard haven’t faced off in over a year...I think it’s okay to let the rivalry die

    #2 maybe #1
    Only person ahead of him I’d say is Rielly. Guys a stud on another steal of a deal. I wonder how Colorado gets so many of those?

    Girard is literally Mete with a much bigger contract.

    #2 behind Morgan Rielly

    If he can play the right side our top 4 would be disgusting

    Rielly-Brodie
    Muzzin-Girard

    It's really good right now with Holl but the jump from Holl to Girard would be insane

    Nurse - Girard would be absolutely disgusting.

    That skating ability...

    I'd put Nurse ahead of him, but Girard would easily be our 2nd best defensemen.

    Easily #1. Keith is not a man capable of playing #1 d minutes anymore and I think if he played #3/4 he could still be very effective

    He would probably be the Flames best defenseman

    Colorado, Vegas, Carolina and Columbus are the only teams where he’d be less than a #2 I’m pretty sure. He’s pretty comfortably a top 30D in the NHL with plenty of argument in the 18-25 range.

    Right now, he'd be the #2 behind Petry, though the latter is more error prone these days.

    Of course, with the way this defense is assembled he'd likely be the #7 because no size. :(

    Right behind Nurse as our number 2. Lol at the assertion he is vanilla, where do you find these takes? Another Girard thread seems to be backfiring.

    #2 or #3. I'd say #2. I think he's better than Trouba/Lindgren.

    Probably #3 behind Pietrangelo and Theodore but not far behind Theodore. Our blueline would be nasty if we had Girard.

    Pietrangelo-Martinez
    Theodore-Girard
    Whitecloud-McNabb

    Hague and Holden as #7 reserves

    Lol by watching him play?

    You have a funny idea of backfiring considering last thread was closed to due to lopsided results. Even the poll on the avs board didn't work out so well since some fanboys wanted their righteous beliefs to be completely unanimous.

    I know Whitecloud has been good but has Hague really been that bad?
