But for our 1st rounder, BPA available either way. Tough to look ahead 3-4 years and really know what the team will look like. Things change fast, especially with Murray making deals.
People seem to think we are deeper at forward but they aren't taken into consideration where those forwards will play. Yes, we have Silf, Zbad, Stone, Prince, Noesen, etc. Let's assume everyone hits their potential. None of those guys are top line forwards. If he tops out on his potential, Zbad is a borderline #1 centre. Meanwhile, if they all reach their potential, with Karlsson, Cowen, Ceci, Weircoch, our top 4 is set. We need top-line offence. BPA still, but that's our need, not D-men.
