My 2 cents....

Why are people ticketed for speeding more than tailgating? Truth is tailgaiting is more dangerous than speeding, but speeding is easier to prove/quantify.

Same for D's.

It is easier to look at a kid's stats and see goals, than it is to see into the future whether a guy will physically and mentally mature into a guy who can control the play, as a good D has to.

The position has so many fine points that need to be developped, it is not a raw skill position like a scoring forward or goaltender.

Stat sheets are easy to read. The future is not.
