I really like our overall mix, but the sooner we can get someone to create some offense from the back-end into our line-up, the better -- especially in the absence of quality offensive wingers up front.

Perhaps it's just semantics, but while a guy like Paul Martin might be considered a puck-MOVING Dman, I want a point-producing Dman, which is different.
Well, Paul Martin is exactly what I was referring to when I said PMD. Offensive defensemen? Sure. Defensive defensemen? Absolutely.

It's these hybrid types that kinda skew the situation, imo. ESPECIALLY inconsistent hybrid types, of which Paul Martin is one.
