Does anybody else think we need to hire a few more scouts to find Defenders?

Guys like Bodrov, and Lehtivuori were great picks IMO, just unfortunate circumstances meant they have not became what they could. Both had great upside.
Bourdon is NHL calibre, Marshall just under it.
Sbisa and Pitkanen are our only 2 first rounders in last 10 years... both are damn solid NHL d men now.
If you look at our 1-3 draft picks and the hit to miss ratio we are about in line with the NHL percentage wise, most teams benifited from drafting a d man or two in the 2003 draft... we only drafted 1 dman then... Picard.
We just don't draft D often enough early on... but it is all luck anyway.
