I think we have very good defensive d-man and height on d depth in the system and therefore the pick should of be used on a talanted forward such as Tukonen or an offensive d-man such as Thelen. Also Niclas Havelid wasn't the top 4 d-man I had in mind when DW said he was looking to acquire a top 4 d-man on draft day. NOT HAPPY DON! :mad:

P.S. What is it with DW's facsination with big d-man - Manson, Sutton, Coburn, Majesky and now Valabik
Lewis is an offensive defenseman. If you want to know more about him, try reading his
HF Player Profile.

P. S. Lewis is my "sleeper" pick of the draft (I mentioned this at least twice on the Prospects board) and I'm sticking with him.
