I don't think our defence prospect pool is the problem. With PK and Weber graduating, we still according to his list have Yemelin, Beaulieu and Tinordi. Combined that with PK and Markov under contract, our d core will be ok until the next batch are ready to graduate.
Our problem lies in our forward prospect pool. Having Palushaj at the top isn't appealing to me. Leblanc and Kristo I'd say are in the 25-60% range of making it to the NHL.
You are right though, we need to start drafting for need a little more in the first round, we've spent most of our picks on goalie and defence for the past few years and we are stronger in those departments now.
