There's still some great #4 defenceman still available. #6 defenceman, double shift the PP. That's what I would do, but I'm curious what's the other think about this situation.
You don't draft Housley to go up against opposing lines. You draft him to create offense. Just because he could get in trouble in his own end doesn't mean you nail him to the bench. A guy of his skill is going to create more goals for than he'll cause against.
