Yeah, no.

Let me elaborate, Pulock is a phenomenal player, he's got wheels, skill and a great slapper, but he's not dominant. He plays on the Wheat Kings, an offensive juggernaut ( yes he's a huge part of that ) I'd like him to get a bit angry. He puts up points, he plays a decent D game, but he's not as complete as Jones, Murray or Reinhart and Rielly is a better skater and passer. However I would take him ahead of all dmen in the dub except Jones and Murray.

I can't see an offensive dman like Pulock taken ahead of a more "complete" dman, you see it all the time at drafts, EJ was taken 1st because he was thought to be a great 2-way force, Murray ahead of Offensive dmen like Rielly and Dumba. There are not many pure offensive guys taken ahead of a two way guy, because there is that risk that they don't translate.
