    Balancing out LD and RD, and offensive and defensive d-men.

    Chabot - Doughty
    Giordano - Makar
    Rielly - Pietrangelo

    (HM: Burns, Letang)

    Imagine going from Pronger, Niedermayer, Weber, Doughty and Keith to that. Yikes.

    Pietrangelo is the only one of those guys who is genuinely good in his own zone (and there is at least one guy on his own team who is clearly better than him in that regard).

    Pietrangelo, Reilly, Mr. Burns, Letang, and probably Makar.

    Next would come from amongst Chabot, Hamilton, and probably Doughty.

    Chabot-Pietrangelo
    Rielly-Doughty
    Morrissey-Parayko
    Makar/Burns

    Perhaps it's a little too geared towards the youth.

    I'm not necessarily disagreeing but it's interesting to see Makar on most lists here already.

    Surprised that nobody mentioned Weber right now...even in the 7th or 8th spot. The guy has maybe slowed down a tad, but he's still an absolute rock back there. His offence is still extremely strong as well.

    In 2 years I can obviously see him not being there, but if I was building an Olympic team for this month (and he was healthy) he would absolutely be part of my top 7.

    I disagree only because Makar is a big meanie and was rude to Canada last olympics so I doubt they ask him to the dance this time.

    I like the lists with Morrissey and Parayko. Even as a Leaf fan, I would rather see those two out over Rielly if the team is already stacked offensively.

    Chabot - Pietrangelo
    Rielly - Parayko
    Morrissey - Makar
    Doughty

    Same thing with Giordano. I doubt Team Canada would invite Giordano to the Olympics, as he has turned them down a bunch for the worlds

    I never knew that! Maybe they'll be so hard up for good LD that they'll bite the bullet with him. He's probably the best one or second on the left

    This is likely my favourite group. Maybe Burns or Giordano instead of Morrissey.

    That would be a ballsy roster for Canada to send out there. Peter Angelo and 5 babies xD. That said I think it has some of the better balance of these other proposed charts.

    Although Makar is a stud, that has got to be the worst Best-on-Best Canadian D-core in a long time.

    Slightly off topic, but apart from Chara, Boston's D-core would be entirely American right now, and would still be excellent:

    Krug - McAvoy
    Grzelcyk - Carlo
    Moore - Clifton/Miller

    Niedermayer Weber
    Pronger Boyle
    Keith Doughty
    Seabrook

    Our d corps in 2010.

    Keith Weber
    Vlasic Doughty
    Bouwmeester Pietrangelo
    Hamhuis Subban

    2014 Squad.

    Canadian defensemen aren't what they once were. We peaked in those two Olympics. Hopefully a couple prodigies in the pipeline come up soon because there aren't that many good players right now.

    A poll would be nice to see.

    My take:


    LD Giordano -- RD Letang
    LD Chabot -- RD Doughty
    LD Rielly -- RD Pietrangelo
    7th RD Ryan Ellis

    Most promising kid: Cale Makar
