The point for me is that there's a good chance to hit a home run with a prospect like this. A guy that could very well become a lot better than MDZ in 2-3 years. I guess I just don't see MDZ as being that much better than either Barrie and/or Elliott (if at all) when these guys start playing consistently at the NHL level. [I know a lot of people will disagree with that but it's my opinion]
I don't disagree with that. I just have high hopes for these guys. I'm hoping both will be top 4, with one being top pairing. If MDZ develops as a top pairing D, I'd be tickled. We don't necessarily need 2 top pairing PMDs, but that's not a bad problem to have.
