I just saw Zadorov recently and I really love his game. Button seems to be in love with him as well putting him in his top 10. If the Islanders ended up with him, their system would probably have the best collection of big, badass defensemen in the league.

Reinhart (not particularly mean)

I'm pretty sure Garth's intent would then be clear: build a blueline full of big bruisers to go up against Crosby, Malkin, Giroux, Kovalchuk, Nash, Gaborik, etc. in the division. It almost seems as though that's what he's up to regardless if they take Zadorov or not. I really like Pulock, however, and would prefer they end up with a more offensive type like him to balance some of these defensive defensemen. I know Pelech is putting up points, I just don't see it translating.
That defensive lineup would give me goosebumps...
