I hate this pick. I have no problem with picking a defenseman at #8, I just have a problem with picking this one. Any defenseman whose weakness is his "defensive game" is a guy I want nothing to do with.

2-4 minutes out of the game, his job is offense. The rest of the game, his first responsibility is defense. If he sucks at what he's supposed to be doing for 16-18 minutes of his icetime, he sucks.

Hoping some other team that overvalues offense from defensemen will trade us something good for him eventually.
