You can disagree all you want, There's noway that is the best D core in the league. Carolina and Nashville are still better by a country mile.

Zero chance that would be the best D core in the league, Both Chychrun and Sanheim are so overrated it isn't funny.

Chrychan can play both sides, if Hughes slides over we need someone to play with Myers

It's not even the best in the Pacific, Calgary's is better LA's is pretty good

Hughes is the only really good Dman on the team.
OEL is mediocre at best, he's a shell of his former self and paid way too much money to boot.
Tyler Myers is meh.

Chychrun to Vancouver isn't happening, as Vancouver really doesn't have the pieces to entice Bill Armstrong.
And Travis Sanheim is way overrated as is Jakob chychrun.

none of these teams accept. whether people argue Chychrun is overrated or not, AZ asks for Hoglander, Podkolzin or Lekkerimaki in return. Chychrun also can't play both sides, I don't know why CF says he can... he's strictly a LHD.


The right side, aside from hughes (who isnt even a right hand shot) is still terrible. This D core doesn't even scratch the top 10, sorry.

Calgary has a more well rounded D core. Yeah you don't have a wickedly talented OFD like Hughes, but Andersson is good for 50 pts, Hanifin 40+, Weegar 40+, as well as solid shut down guys with great metrics like Zadorov and Tanev. Calgary has the upper hand for D.

Don't forget Colorado. This list is getting kind of long. Is this even a top 5 dcore in the league?

Hughes is a clear step up from anyone on Calgary, Chychrun probably would be too if he played on a real team. That matters a whole lot more than the worst two defensemen on your team. Ask Tampa who won Cups with guys like Shattenkirk, Bogosian, Schenn and Ruuta playing regular minutes.
