I guess I was hoping for more top 4 D's instead of bottom 2 but I guess this is GMGMs master stroke.
Dmen can take much longer to mature than forwards of that there is no doubt.
Erskine sure looks good in the top 4 to me. When Green and Orlov get healthy we will have 5 viable guys I'd feel comfortable with getting top 4 minutes but the problem still remains lack of physicality and nastiness on the D.
Hopefully this signing helps address that.
