i agree that the system needs a big hitting defenseman...however unless one falls pretty far they arent available in the 20's.....even carlson was iffy in that area.....IMO i would rather go for an offensive defenseman as it seems like most teams dont let those guys hit UFA
p.s. yes i know last year rafalski and campbell and redden this year, however that is after they get HUGE signing bonuses....i think finding a physical defenseman would be easier to add to a second pairing
