Every year or two we have an experienced 2nd or 3rd pairing PMD to move if needed and can make room for Deslauriers and Forbert etc.

It is scary how seriously well set up we are on D. This alone for me is the reason to keep DL above all else as his scouts are amazing at drafting legitimate NHL caliber defensemen.
He's proven he can draft D prospects well very well but when it comes to offense, we've literally got no one who can become a top 6 forward but Brayden Schenn, Andrei Loktionov, Oscar Moller and Tyler Toffoli.. Maybe Brandon Kozun one day, that's wishful thinking though
