And Slavin is good, real good.

Also, Ekblad? Chabot's offence is marginally better, sure, but the rest of their games? Ekblad every day of the week.

I'd like to see what Chabot looks like as a 20-22 minute defensemen.  They play him too much and I think his defensive play suffers for it.

He's also a guy who a career high of 55 points but then put up 39 in 71, 31 in 49 and 38 in 59GP the following three seasons.  Where does his 82GP play out to based on those numbers...I don't know.    I don't care for projecting scoring because when you only play a 1/2 to 2/3 of a season that's a big chunk of games to just give a guy credit for the production.

I'd easily take Fox who has 25 fewer points in 3 seasons compared to Chabot's 6.  He's also a year younger and this year is showing that he also produces extremely well in the postseason. (10 points in 8 games).

I don't particularly care for Darnell Nurse.  And I'll concede Hanifin and Parayko but it seems like an odd flex.

Yup. Chabot's numbers are definitely more eye-popping, but, Slavin is the better overall defenceman.

Really, this guy is 3 for 8 on this list - and, looking at role, defensive play, etc., that might even be debatable.

This is probably not a big issue for people and understandably but is there a reason why the NHL hasn't added an All-NHL 3rd team to the end of year all star selections? Or why they haven't moved it to just having 3 forwards instead of LW-C-RW?

Seems if the purpose is to create an accurate picture of who were the important guys in the league you'd have to have a way to genuinely do that. As it stands, if they vote by virtue of listed positiosn, one of Draisaitl or Stamkos(I'm assuming McDavid and Matthews are locks for the two spots at Centre) won't be on the league end all-star team but someone like Mikko Rantanen or Patrick Kane will be.

Comparing it to Al the NBA selection you have 3 teams for 15 players.  Rosters have 15 players.

I'm surprised you don't have 12 forwards, 6 defensemen and two goaltenders

Or something at least, right? Like the NBA seems to go out of their way to make their stuff fun to talk about and the NHL is like "Huh, I guess that was the second best Left Wing this year?"
