Well, I think it's completely irrelevant. The likelihood of Alex Grant ever being a regular Dman for the Penguins is < 5%. When you're drafting a defenseman in the top 8 of the draft, you're projecting him to be a top-4 defenseman in the NHL.


The implication of your statement is that because we have an "offensive" guy in Grant in the AHL, it obviates the need for a guy with similar offensive skills who's likely to one day play in our top 4 on our NHL club NHL. That seriously has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard.
