Kris is #4 on the list, one that is stacked with some great defensemen. Check out this quote with the top three and a link to the complete list HERE.
Most seasons boast two or three players who are jockeying for the top spot in the rankings, but this year’s No. 1 earned his spot last November. That’s when Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson (19 goals, 59 assists) took over the top spot, and he’ll stay there now. The Landsbro, Sweden native outscored all other defensemen by 25 points and he has a chance to do it again as he’ll quarterback the power play and skate 25-plus minutes per night. Zdeno Chara (12 goals, 42 assists) and Shea Weber (19 goals, 30 assists) round out the top three — each can be counted on to notch 45-plus points, 230 shots on goal and to quarterback their team’s No. 1 power-play unit. Weber could lead the position in goals when all is said and done.
