I think that since we haven't been patient enough with our prospect D or G, we tend to trade them away or fail to develop them. Forwards are just easier and not having 2nd round picks do hurt, but even the D we've taken in the top ... well ... 90% of the D we take regardless of the round get traded before they should be or fail to make an impact. Even in a D and G heavy draft we take players who might not make it. They need to stop hunting for diamonds in the rough or typical Flyer type players and take players that actually have a chance.
