Unless there's been some serious changes in the scouting department, I'm not sure how anyone can think that trend will change.
Well you want to cut out Hatcher and Matvichuk from their Minnesota days, thats fine. But, outside of Jackman and Vagner , they havent used first round picks on d-men(excluding this past draft), and the highest they have taken a d-men besides those two has been Daley at #43(again, excluding the past draft)..so I think it goes more not even picking defensemen high in the draft rather than incompetence in developing them.

Those guys have been all over Ellis, Ott, and Daley ever since that team started losing. Its alot easier to blame someone else's prospects rather than your own. Im actually a bit surprised he had something kind of positive to say about Ott.
