I have no problem drafting Dmen all day long, provided that most of them have some offensive upside. The same way having forwards who can play a good "team defense" can help the team win and help support a less strong D-corps, having offensive Dmen who can start the play up ice and put up some points helps the team score more goals and can make up for some weaknesses offensively amongst the forwards.


2 years ago, Mike Gillis said the goal & strategy of their team was to have a D-corps that could collectively put up 200 points. They were able to do that, finished with the President's trophy and got to within 1 victory short of a Stanley Cup. I think we have a realistic shot of reaching 200 points or more among our Dmen in a few years if all develop the way we hope.
