I don't agree with the statement that certain types of defensemen are harder to come by then others. Elite skill is hard to come by regardless of if it is offensive or defensive. We could probably land Kaberle for a 1st at this point, and if you don't think his offensive ability is near elite, then you need to give your head a shake (people always underrate Kaberle, not targeted at anyone in particular).
People also knock the McIlrath pick as based on need and not BPA, but the same thing could have been said about Fowler if we took him. It's a never ending circle.
Del Zotto is a 20 year old living in NYC. Once he gets his head on straight he will be fine.
