Take Boyle out and they probably have the worst D in the league. Now, in all fairness, take Vinny out and they have the weakest offense too.
If they only go by drafting and not trades, it'll take a long time for TB to get back to Stanley Cup material.

I just feel like you should solidify one thing at a time. They've gotten a good goalie, their D is building up but lacks depth IMO and their offense relies solely on 2players.
If i were them, i would continue to bring in depth on D and then focus on Fowards. Very much so like Gainey did with us.

Although i don't think anybody can say taking Stamkos would be a bad move. I mean, imagine they do pick Stamkos, finish last again and get Tavares in the 09 draft. Their offense would simply be phenomenal at that point.

But i just said i wouldnt be surprised if they chose Doughty because im more of a ''finish building one part and then move on to the next one''
Taking Doughty over Stamkos is a bad move... If you have multiple weaknesses you must take the best player available, and Stamkos is surely the BPA.
