If at the 2013 draft the BPA was a defenseman how would you feel about drafting him?

Not his fault at all. Does take a bad angle at it, but nothing he could do because he catches an edge.
Other clips of him withi his head down getting levelled...
I could go on, but these are all just examples of him not being prepared to take the hit or one of his dmen giving him a suicide pass.
I dunno, I think I'm going to disagree. I went in and give them all a watch, and only Abdelkader's hit looked like a stupid play on Hall's part. Looked like he knew he was there because you can see him go for the deke, but he had his head down and obviously read it wrong. The first one he lost his edge and it ended up being a lot worse than it would have been otherwise -- a good shoulder to shoulder hit. The first Edler one, if you watch his head, it's up and looking right at Edler, and he clearly braces himself for the hit -- he just gets trucked (we've all been there
). The second one he just runs into his back. Weird play.
