I think they really like Shinkaruk for Medicine Hat out of the Dub and they also feel outside of Jones there are at least 6 top 2 Defensemen in the top 20 of the draft
How many times has Craig Heisinger been to Europe this year to scout? Last count it was four, they aren't doing that so he can get frequent flier points. It all depends where they draft , I highly doubt they would pass on a Lindholm at the correct spot for them . Saying that , there is a lot of North American talent so going that route also would not at all surprise me either.
Please let us know who your top 2 pairing D men are for this draft , thanks.
