Here's the thing though. You can draft what you need, but top pairing defenseman are hard to come by. Teams dont trade them away like with forwards. The current drafting forwards philosophy hasnt helped the team in the longest time find their #1 defender. The guys we did find played with the team for a few years before they get too old. For once I would love to have a good defender that is young and we know will be with the team for awhile. Grabbing these 35 yr old guys who get hurt or retire in 2-3 years is killing us. We are severely overpaying for them on the downturn of their career.
