The fact he'd be on the second team here is idiotic as well.

Ur talking about Couts right? I like him a looot? but in 2 years would I take him over Brady? It's questionable, k don't think so...I'm betting Tkachuk will be a beast when he actually gets a good team / center

Oh ya Tkachuk is really good no doubt, I just think Couts would deserve it over Larkin. He'd be a nice complementary shut down C for this team kind of lacking defense on forwards imo.

Slavin is already on his fifth season, and has been consistent playing the way he is.

Hughes could possibly be better in two years, but there is also a strong chnce that he is riding hot wtih a hot Vancouver team.

Krug has solidified him self as arguably the best powerplay quarter back in the league, while being a solid offensive defensman. And I don't see that changing over the next two seasons.

Hughes will be the better powerplay qb...I mean he already is one of the best, and in 2 years his defense will be better than Keugs

Like I said Hughes may possibly be better.

But i really hope you don't honestly think Slavin is better than Krug.

Slavin is a #1D that is very good on both sides of the ice. He doesnt get a lot of powerplay time as the Canes have Dougie and Gardiner already (he will now though) but has 23 ES points this season. He clocks heavy minutes on the PK as well.

If youve watched a single Vancouver game this ywar or even looked at the stats of their defense Hughes is a clear main contributor to thwir success and undisputed best defense on the team.

Krug is a great PP QB, best in the league? No way, that belongs to Carlson. Hes also not very good defensively

IMO Slavin is not a #1 D. Hamilton is the #1 D on that team playing in all situations. Slavin slots in amongst the other good top 4 defenseman they have. His offensive abilities clearly aren't that good or he would be slotted with more PP time.

Hughes is a good offensive defenseman with room to grow. As I said. In two years he may be better than Krug but he now gets over 50% of his points on the PP. and As you said looking at the stats he's -8, and the third defenseman in TOI on Vancouver. So i wouldn't be running with saying he is by far their top defenseman.

As for Krug he has ran a top three powerplay in the NHL since 2013-14 (His rookie season). Therefore, as I said arguably the best powerplay quarter back in the league. He contributes heavily at even strengths and proved last season that he could shut down top lines as him and Carlo were matched against other teams top lines all last season in the playoffs.

The mindset that a team cant have more than 1 #1D is where you falter (ie Burns Karlsson, Dumba Suter, Heiskanen Klingberg) Slavin is overall the best defense on that team. Literally only last year of the last 5 years has Krug had a better GAR and WAR then Slavin.

I agree teams can have more than 1, #1 D. Nashville had three for years. Slavin is just not one of them. If he was a #1 D he would play in all situations. Not be left out for Gardiner on the PP. Any #1 D would play in all situations and he does not.

Guess that means Krug isnt a #1D as he has less PK ice time then Slavin does PP time

You are correct. He is not. But his offensive ability along with being reliable in his own end, is more valuable then Slavin being good defensively and mediocre offensively.

This is false, yes Krug is strong offensively but he is only mediocre in his own end at best. There is a reason he has a 69% oZone start. Yet still has 10 less ES points then Slavin on a higher scoring team
Your responses are clearly homer
