It's worth mentioning that Gillis has definitely focused on forwards with all of the early draft picks. Sauve is his only D picked in the first two rounds which seems low even factoring in the team's lack of low draft picks over the time period. While I don't have real issues with his picks per se, and he's done well with the late round D picks, I think it'd be worth looking for high potential defencemen in the early rounds and taking them over a comparable forward prospect. Don't avoid BPA or anything, but where there's two equivalent players, take the one with the potential to be a defensive stud.
