Best NHL Defensemen

Alex and Chace are back with part three of their ranking series! Today, they look at the best NHL defensemen. If you missed centres and wingers, make sure to check those episodes too. First, the guys have news to discuss. They break down the Sean Monahan trade that led to a long-awaited Nazem Kadri deal. How does this affect all parties involved? As well, what does it mean for the future of Carey Price?

Finally, they get into their Top 20 lists. As always, they start with some honourable mentions of players that just missed the cut. From there, they dive into their lists, comparing and contrasting certain players. A few names Alex has much higher than Chace, and vice versa. This leads to interesting discussion and debate on how to evaluate past performance with also including injuries, age, etc moving forward. However, when it gets to the top five of the list, both Alex and Chace are impressed when they have the same names.

Who are Alex and Chace? Alex and Chace are both from the Waterloo region in Ontario, Canada. Both of them grew up playing hockey and shortly after fell in love with analyzing it. Chace is a noted Leafs and Penguins fan, while Alex is a die-hard Senators fan. You can find Alex’s work at, including his other podcast, The Last Word on Sens Podcast.
