    A check in on the 11 most expensive defensemen of season 7 - The 11 defensemen who were bid on the most and are still in the CHL.

    [​IMG]

    *MikeK's section edited to make more clear, was worded poorly and gave an inaccurate representation of my opinion

    With week 4 underway, we’re going to take a look back and see how the 11 most expensive defensemen in bidding (who are still in the CHL) are doing. There were three people with the contract to take the #9 spot, thus why there aren’t 10 but 11. These stats reflect weeks 1-3 only, games played today were not factored in.


    1) @MikeK59 ($7,750,000, AGM, RD, Drummondville Voltigeurs)


    7-2-0, 0 G, 8 A, 8 P, +7 +/-, 35 TA, +5 T/G, 32 GA

    Worth the money?: Kind of both?


    Mike's contract is high, and while I don't necessarily agree with such a high contract, his value is worth being the most expensive defenseman (again, I don't necessarily agree with the almost 8 mil, but no one should've gone for more, thus why I say he was "kind of both", he's the best dman in the league, in my opinion). This is Mike’s best season in the CHL, looking significantly better than in season 5, the last time he was a full time defenseman. He’s posting almost 4 takeaways a game as well as almost a point for game, and while his goals allowed count isn’t pretty, 13 of them came in one game where the goalie threw (and is now banned), leaving him with 19 goals in 8 games (6 of those 19 came in another game, leaving him with 13 in 7). Also, did I mention that +5 T/G?


    2) @Gamingfreak911 ($6,750,000, RD, Kamloops Blazers)


    6-3-0, 3 G, 9 A, +18 +/-, 34 TA, -17 T/G, 18 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    Gamingfreak is widely considered to be one of the best if not the best defenseman in the LGCHL PSN; I would’ve been surprised to see him go for less than $5,000,000. He’s posting over a point per game and has picked up 3 goals on only 13 shots. His T/G is mediocre and nothing outstanding, but he’s averaging 4 T/A a game, and it doesn’t look like his giveaways have been burning him based on that +/-.


    3) @HyPe_DoMiNaToR ($6,750,000, LD, Barrie Colts)


    6-3-0, 1 G, 3 A, 4 P, 0 +/-, 36 TA, +1 T/G, 28 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    Playing as a defensive defenseman the majority of the time, his lack of points is nothing bad, although in season 6 he did have more PPG. He’s also been more likely to put himself in the box this season (8 PIM right now, 6 all of season 6), but his T/G of +1 is outstanding, and he is tied for the most takeaways on this list. Even on a 12-14-1 team, he’s still winning ⅔ of his games, signifying his impact on his team, which is why I consider him to be worth the money.


    4) @Dustinkeefe19 ($6,250,000, RD, Ottawa 67s)


    6-2-1, 2 G, 6 A, 8 P, +6 +/-, 28 TA, -28 T/G, 18 GA

    Worth the money?: No.


    I already know I’m going to get bashed for saying he’s not worth the money. Dustin and Smiitty were two of the most expensive bids at the beginning of the bidding session, with Dustin closing out at over 6 million. A combo of DD and TWD has given him almost a PPG, along with giving up 2 goals a game. What makes Dustin special in my opinion is that the most goals he’s given up in a game is 4. Everytime I see him in drops on the other team, I get smashed. The reason I say he wasn’t worth the money is that he gets rocked by great teams. In 2 games against the Bulldogs and Spitfires (1 each), he has 28 giveaways. Even with only 18 goals allowed, that’s simply too many against teams that will capitalize off of mistakes. Sure, I'm basing his worth off of one stat, but it's an important one, a good defenseman doesn't turn the puck over religiously, no matter the opponent.


    5) @HercyParvin ($6,250,000, RD, Rimouski Oceanic)


    3-0-0, 0 G, 2 A, 2 P, +2 +/-, 13 TA, -9 T/G, 3 GA

    Worth the money?: No.


    Hercy was just TC’ed yesterday for what I assume are availability issues, after not playing in weeks 2 or 3. For that, he’s not worth the money. His stats in week 1 were okay, but nothing too amazing. Had he played in three weeks, he would’ve been on target for 39 takeaways, which would’ve been the most out of everyone on this list (although a -27 T/G would’ve looked relatively ugly). He allowed 1 goal in all 3 of his games, although he didn’t face any powerhouses (he played the Armada, Remparts, and Olympiques). First major bust of this group, right here. Sorry Oceanic (although it looks like you guys are getting by fine without him).


    6) @kingggermaan17 ($6,000,000, LD, Spokane Chiefs)


    7-1-1, 1 G, 4 A, 5 P, +17 +/-, 32 TA, -5 T/G, 18 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    In his first stint as defenseman, King has had a solid season, posting a decent T/G and allowing 2 goals per game (he’s only given up 6 goals in 3 games against the rival Wheat Kings). One thing he’s not providing is a lot of offense. Even though he’s a defenseman, when you’re playing as a PMD or TWD as well as being paid $6,000,000, you should be doing more than getting a point essentially every two games. I doubt that his production is gonna increase now that he’s on Spokane, and I expect him to start getting rocked a little bit... like the entire Spokane team (I mean 131 goals allowed through three weeks? Come on). He’s worth the price for his defense rather than his offense. I would like to apologize to King, rip your season.


    7) @Ravens9190 ($5,750,000, LD, Portland Winterhawks)


    6-3-0, 0 G, 8 A, 8 P, +17 +/-, 36 TA, -14 T/G, 25 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    Ravens has had a great season on a great Portland Winterhawks team. He’s had two games with 0 giveaways,is tied for the most takeaways on this list, and is currently set to beat his points total from season 6 (11), along with takeaways (76). @FrannieDeVito made a risky move in spending almost 6 million on a player who went 8-15-1 last season, but it’s worked out great for him and the organization. Ravens will be dominant the rest of the season; he is absolutely worth the money spent on him.


    8) @NHL-MOST-HATED99 ($5,750,000, RD, Oshawa Generals)


    5-3-1, 1 G, 8 A, 9 P, +8 +/-, 33 TA, -1 T/G, 19 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    NHL is in his first season on LG, and he’s definitely come in with a bang. He’s picked up a PPG and has a solid T/G through the first three weeks. The best part about NHL is that he’s given up 3 goals or less in every game thus far. He’s consistently fantastic and is capable of contributing on both ends. Great pickup by @Blitzburgh_31 .


    9) @TurmoiIz ($5,500,000, LD, Windsor Spitfires)


    6-3-0, 3 G, 10 A, 13 P, +18 +/-, 18 TA, -19 TA/GA, 17 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    With only 18 takeaways, TurmoiIz is still a solid defenseman. The TWD/OD has posted over a point per game including 3 goals, and even with only 18 takeaways, only has a -19 TA/GA, showing that he doesn’t turn the puck over that much. His lack of takeaways also hasn’t translated to a lot of goals against, so he’s clearly doing something right.


    10) @Dlcjr75 ($5,500,000, LD, Kingston Frontenacs)


    4-3-1, 2 G, 2 A, 4 P, +4 +/-, 28 TA, -19 T/G, 24 GA

    Worth the money?: No.


    Dlc was TC’ed a week ago, automatically making him not worth the money. If he wasn’t TC’ed, I would still be debating whether he was worth it. His stats aren’t that bad, but for some reason I just can’t give a clear determination, I’m not sure what’s throwing me off. Anyways, he’s sitting on Kingston’s TC for unknown reasons. Not worth the money.


    11) @DanOtunE ($5,500,000, RD, Cape Breton Screaming Eagles)


    7-1-1, 0 G, 10 A, +27 +/-, 30 TA, -20 T/G, 27 GA

    Worth the money?: Yes.


    Contrary to what I think, in our season 6 Tigres alumni chat, Dan said, “Dude I agree” followed by, “I wouldn’t spend that much on myself” as we watched his price climb. Well, sorry Dan, but you’re worth the money. Dan has been a part of half of his team’s wins, and has racked up over a PPG. His +27 is the highest on this list, and his 30 takeaways and -20 T/G is nothing to be ashamed about. Even with 27 GA, 15 of those came in 2 games (one was against Gatineau though… ouch), leaving him with 12 goals over 7 games.​

    I phrased it incorrectly. My logic is that I believe he is the best defenseman, so I believe that he should've had the highest contract. Thus I marked his contract as worth it. I see that the way I put it made it sound like something else, and I'll change it accordingly.

    MikeK is a good dude but he'd probably be the first to tell you that his cap hit is ridiculous. He's still a good defenseman but he's just now known as the 7.75 mil man. And if he ever signs up late due to the new rules, that money is going to follow him.

    My two D man Goaliegodz and GoIdfuryou are arguably the best in the league. 4.75 and 5.2. Funny how they just missed this list. Gold is 10-0, Goalie godz probably would be had I got him sooner.

    This was very interesting. Well written and researched. Good deal. I didn't notice the record of each club that the players were on, which I think might make a difference but well done.
