It might seem like a stretch to take yet another defenseman this early, and I may yet split the two of them up (depends on how the rest of the draft plays out, and it certainly depends on playoff matchups), but in a division where the weakest 1st line is probably going to be built around Phil Esposito, having a pair of 27 minute horses is a must. Now I have them.
I also wanted Langway. I think he's terribly underrated, even if he is in the HoF, and your strategy is pretty good.
