Provided that Enstrom stays next year and Buff removes his head slightly from his a** in the future you have to admit that might be one of the best groups of defensemen in the NHL
No, no, no to having an 18 year old defenseman in the NHL next year. Reinhart is no Larsson, there is no D that should be in the NHL at 18 from this draft(Maaybe Ryan Murray).

No player we draft will have an impact next year, probably not even the year after that. At the earliest, we are looking for a player for 14-15. Do not project into lines.

The more I look at our depth chart though, the more a defenseman might be a good idea to start to replenish the system since most of our good D prospects are NHL ready or close (Bogosian/Kulda/Postma).
