Do you need a big shot to play a sound defensive game? I don't think so.

Given what we have on the back end already (Phaneuf, Rielly, Gardiner, Blacker), we're more in need of Nurse or Morrisy, and what they bring to the table.

No, but it does help if you want to play a sound offensive game.

You are making the mistake you did last year again, you draft the BPA. Again I'll use the Cirella / Macinnis example. I would never draft Cirella for the Leafs because we supposedly need size on the D when a unique offensive defenceman is available in Macinnis. Especially when that offensive defenceman can play Defence pretty well also.
