Ryan Suter, for me.
I think that Minnesota PP will be very, very good (top 10 in the league).
The hands on that MIN PP are just soooo good.
And let's not forget... Minnesota's coach, Mike Yeo, was the former PP special.ist of the Pittsburgh Penguins prior to 2010.
While I love Enstrom, his best year was 2010-2011 with 28 PPP.
Winnipeg does NOT have enough skill on their PP for him to put that up again.
It was a very, very good year.
Even-strength, he's a super defensemen, top 15 even-strength scorer in the NHL.
Even last year, being a down year, he had 22 ESP in 62 games... but, only 11 PPP last year.
(This is much more realistic, IMO, of the actual Jets hand-skill on their PPP than the magical 28 PPP year.)
IMO, you invest in defensemen scoring based on:
i) Their own skill
ii) Their team's PP weapons.
iii) Their team's even-strength scoring talent.
iv) Other items
Enstrom is a better overall offensive defenseman than Suter, yes... but I loooove that MIN PP.
(As an off-consideration though... Del Zotto is the only one of that group that puts up some decent HIT totals. 156 last year. Suter & Enstrom posted just 46 & 24 respectively)
