Emelin (6ft2, 220lbs)
Beaulieu (6ft3, 220lbs)

I don't say that I would not add a guy like Nurse or Zadorov, but it's not a small defense. It's a pretty tough one actually. The smallest is Subban who is tough. The softest is Beaulieu, but he's big. Adding Zadorov to that line up would be awesome.

I know what you're saying and I agree, but Gorges does get out muscled all the time and isn't a guy that wears you down with the body. Beaulieu is listed at 191 lbs most places...waiting 2 years to project him at 220 and play physical is hopeful. Tinordi will def help alot in that aspect but I'm definitely not against acquiring a big 6'4 capable NHL defenseman who can replace Bouillion on a nightly basis right now.

With that being said, I think we draft forwards high to try and snag someone with a high enough talent level to play with Chuckie, get him someone with size and high skill level. Maybe an Erne or Mantha if we pick around 15...
