This. Is. My. Biggest. Fear.

I think we blew it with the Pouliot pick and a large part of me feels that it's part of Shero's attempt to recreate the Predators blue line from the past 2-3 years.

It was a bonehead move to pick a project defensemen ahead of more established forwards. I even said after the draft that if you were to tell me that somehow we nabbed Pouliot and Maatta with our first two picks I would have assumed we never traded Staal, moved up to pick Maatta on the first day and grabbed Pouliot in the second round. Someone got cute picking Pouliot at #8...especially with Forsberg and Grigorenko still on the board.

Ridiculous.
