What's the point? see post #1
Crapshoot on picks/prospects: Agreed that drafts are always crapshoots. However, your odds are a lot higher in a deeper draft at finding a solid player who will contribute to the team. Let alone if you can pick up a solid prospect who has had some development in the AHL. That crapshoot gave us Gorges AND Pacioretty. Not saying that you will get that kind of quality back, you might, but you have a chance at getting some good players for a guy who will not be around much longer.
Mentor: We have Gorges, Cube, right now. Keep in mind there are always vet defenseman available on the FA market who can play a mentor role as a top 6 or even a 7th dman. Mentors are not hard to find.
