At least some solid Defensive defensman are on the way, that is one minor thing i look forward to, seeing oleksiak and nemeth become NHL regulars from next year for years to come, in addition to Dillon.

My worry is that you need a number 1 guy who can do it all, play well defensively as well as be a great play maker, a point scorer on the power play, one with a great break out pass to spread the ice and one with an accurate slap shot/one timer to consistently get goalies having to make good saves through traffic.

We dont have anyone like that in our line up or in our system

I see Alex Pietrangelo in St louis and OEL in Phoenix and get massive envy.

You know your team is impotent from an offensive defenseman stand point when they send 5 forwards out on some power plays.
