Is anyone else loving Ryan Stanton right now?


Recommended Posts

As I expected, Stanton has been a very solid addition to our D core. He's improved every year since going undrafted in junior and should have made the Hawks D, IMO.

Rock solid, mobile, bottom-pairing defenseman with some toughness that we have yet to see in his time with the Nucks, should come as he get's more comfortable though.

He has good tools, but what impresses me the most is his intelligence/ how quick his decision making is - consistently seems to be ahead of the play/anticipates exceptionally well - and is very decisive with no hesitancy in his game. Given that he has that kind of pre-emptive instinct, I think it makes it even more impressive how infrequently he makes mistakes. He takes a fair amount of intelligent risks and they pay off on a regular basis. I love his aggressive, intervening (not just positional but opportunistic) style of defending.
