Doesn't make sense to me to list them taking ANOTHER defensemen.
I don't see why they'd pass on a defenseman if he were the best player available. You've listed every defenseman in the entire organisation--11 of them--excluding ECHL fodder like Evans and Engelland. If they had an AHL affiliate, which they don't, they would be hard pressed to ice a complete blueline. The Flames could use help at every position, except maybe goal (but even then Sutter says they'll take a goalie if he's the BPA). The Flames currently don't have a whole lot of picks in this draft, but I would expect them to draft a couple of rearguards with those few picks.
