Still, I think an offensive defenseman that is average defensively, is a better option for this team than a two way guy that may not get higher than 20-30 points. Especially an 18 year old.

Yeah, I know it's hockey future but it's better than nothing. I don't agree with the hockey sense, although I've only watched about 10 games but he has impressed me much more than Jones and I was willing to trade for a high pick to get this guy(at the last draft). I just think he's going to be that good.
