i wouldnt say we are completely lacking in d-men prospects just sather usually goes for the most talented players first or players with the most potential, usually there arent many d-men who are the most talented players ie leetch or lidstrom

sather could defintely break the mold, but 4 years where a d-man was selected in the 2nd round or 3rd seems like a pattern to me
Other than Tyutin it would be a reach to say that a current prospects can become a top 2 dman. We definetly have depth on the blue-line, but the 2 best other than Tyutin I would say are Rachunek and Kondratiev, who hopefully can become 3-4 guys. We definetly need another top dman...
