Our only TRUE offensive defenseman in our system is Donovan. Pulock gives us that puck rushing, offense from the red line that we don't possess at this moment. Draft is a long way away, and as always, I like pretty much everyone in the top 15. As long as we wind up in the top 15 (if there is no season), I'd be happy with any of those guys. I'm a Shinkaruk fan as well as far as getting a sniper.
He's not a sniper. He has excellent hockey sense, knows where to be at the right time and has decent shot but he's not a sniper.
He does have 30+ goal ability, imo.
Joe Thornton of now is a good comparison.
