Did I miss anybody? Why is the first set of lists considered a necessity while the second set is...not a necessity at all?
The caliber of forwards and caliber of defensemen in the system seem pretty even to me.
You need twice the amount of forwards as you do defensemen. You have 7 forwards listed there, I'll even give you Knight, but that's still only 8 to 5. Plus we have two proven young impact D on the team, and only one prospect at forward.
