On Young D-Men (Read if You're Down on Hedman)

+

CopperNBlue did a really nice statistical comparison on young defensemen. If I'm reading things right, the five that made positive corsi contributions with the toughest minutes (QualComp + Zone Starts) this season are (in no particular order): Ryan McDonagh, Nikita Nikitin, PK Subban, Shea Weber, and Victor Hedman. I know some folks were down on Hedman earlier this season, and I don't know how much of it is still there, but this paints a pretty picture. They also have an offensive one that includes Stamkos and Connolly, but neither separate themselves from the pack by this measure.
