Sorry but drafting another d-man to push our d core from above average to elite when we clearly have other pressing issues is pointless imo.
you are looking at it in terms of picking an elite forward or an elite dman...but what if, hypothetically, the first 13 of 14 picks are forwards and when we pick either larsson or murphy are still on the board. do you really think that it would be better to take the 14th best forward who is likely not a future 1st line player?

all things being equal we need a forward, but that doesn't mean that come pick 15 that will be the smart move
