    EDLER!!! Hopefully he stops making silly plays and becomes even more elite so he can fight for Norris.

    Kevin Bieksa. Love his pugnacity as much as his skill, and he's scored some pretty clutch goals for us. And he's a character in the media.

    Hamhuis is one of the most underrated defensemen in the league. This play sums him up perfectly.

    He picks off a pass, and under pressure from the opposing forward, executes a no-look backhanded 3-foot-high saucer outlet pass that springs Hodgson on a breakaway for the tying goal. The response? "HODGSON HODGSON HYPE HYPE HYPE". Hamhuis gets zero credit.

    Maybe by fans of other teams. He gets his fair share of hype from Canucks fans for being everybody's favourite good ol' BC boy...and a great defenseman.

    Edler, favorite player on the team since Cody was dealt. HM's to Hammer and Bieksa.

    I'd pick Bieksa as well if he always played like did in the 2011 playoffs. Probably would not be possible to maintain but he was such a beast.

    My pick for now is Dan Hamhuis.

    Edler, it's been an absolute treat watching him grow with the team.

    Hamhuis is a close second though. I love players that quietly kick ass.
     
  19. Tanev because I trust him the most... and I want to be friends with him

    Edler is just way too high-event for me. He contributes to winning games, but has on occasion lost them pretty much singlehandedly and did so twice in the LA series. End to end rushes and big slappers make for fancy highlights but you need the total package and until he consistently plays reliably I can't call him a #1 defenseman in this league.

    Still surprised more people don't like Bieksa.

    I didn't think Garrison would only have one vote. :laugh:


    I guess I didn't help by voting Ballard. ;)

    Edler is the obvious choice because of the simple fact that he's our best defensman; however, I like Bieksa the most because of his personality off the ice and his toughness on the ice. I see Bieksa as the face of our defense..a real likable personality. And because of this I think Bieksa will be a mainstay in the Canucks organization for a very long time, even when he retires.

    Hamhuis is the best. Edler is the flashiest. Bieksa is my favorite.

    He's been around for less than a year, it's hard to really get to know a player in that time — especially when most of that time was spent in lockout. Ballard has had time to grow on people, so have all our other D.

    Even Alberts... ;)
