Ghost seems to be developing well but it's still early, Sbisa was traded before we could see how he would turn out in our system and Marshall is just a straight up bust. and considering Subban was taken one or two spots later that one really hurts. but i think the main problem attributing to our lack of high end defensive prospects is the fact that the team doesn't draft d-men in higher rounds.
