John Klingberg is better than Jared Spurgeon and Klingberg isnt even the best defenseman on his team
I agree. Spurgeon is good, but no way is he top 5 good. Doughty may still have him beat as well. He's outproduced Spurgeon in every season since 2008, won some serious hardware, brings physicality (invisible in Spurgeon), and is good in his own zone. Sure his production has declined for 3 consecutive seasons, but he's had some hard miles, and declining support.
Suter has 5 consecutive 40+ point seasons, Dumba is no slouch. Is Spurgeon even Minnies top D?
