In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
In response to shuperman's comment: [QUOTE] Hes a #2 a few yrs back. I think his game has slowed. Hes a physical freak and plays a lot of dirty minutes but hes a 3-4 at best at this stage of his career. I would much rather have Boychuk. [/QUOTE]
I could not disagree anymore. And honestly, I don't understand your opinion. He's a 2 in my book, and one of the top 2s who's better than some 1s. A fair number of 1s [/QUOTE]
Please list them. And some of the #2s hes better then. Especially on oh lets say 16 playoff teams from last year. [/QUOTE]
Well that will be easy
Seidenberg is just as good as or better than Ericsson or Quincey on Detroit.
...just as good as or better than Coburn, MacDonald or Streit on Philly
just as good as or better than Martin or Erhoff on Pittsburgh
Same goes for Johnson, Tyutin and Wisnieweski on the Blue Jackets.
Defensively Seidenberg is better than Subban and Markov. Just as good a shot blocker as Gorges.
Don't start breaking offensive stats out.
Want me to go to the west now ?
Lets stay in the East.
detroit- edge seidz
philly- id take coburn...toss up on streit macdonald but if you are gonna use shot block stat?
nyr- seidz would be 4-5 at best.
Pitt- not sure hes better then either martin or Ehrhoff. Matta is better then both of those 2.
blue jackets are similar to philly...lots of serviceable dmen. No true stud.
Montreal- Gorges is gone and hes not playing before markov or pk.
tbay- garrison, stralman carle. He likely cracks 2-3 in tbay.
SJ- i would choose burns over siedz.
Chicago- hes in the 2nd pairing there maybe.
LA- muzzin, voynov
Ana- might beat Beauchemin( i find them very similar)...im taking Vatanen and Lindholm over him. Assuming Fowler is the #1 for now.
StL- might make 2nd pairing.
minny- id give him edge over Spurgeon. Not by a lot though
avs- im taking barrie, johnson ove seidz. Hejda Stuart very similar to seidz.
stars- id give him edge over Goligoski even though they are different styles. 42 pts is nothing to sneeze at.
So of all 16 playoff teams where is he #2 or #1.
Now if i add the non playoff teams there are a handful of teams that have 1-2 better then seidz.
Obviously these are my opinion and no one likes my opinion especially when comparing against the Bruins. And before you reply ask yourself would the player you are gonna bring up would that GM trade one for one. Even the teams he has an edge on i dont think they would trade there 2-3 for seidz even. Let er rip San.
