As for Nurse's offense, to me, it's just a bonus even if I'm picking him at #7. I think he has the capability of being a 30+ point guy, but also to be a unique defensively dominating guy.

It's true you can get shutdown defenseman through FA or later on the draft, but there's very few defensemen in the league with Nurse's wingspan and skating and basically none with his wingspan, skating and nastiness.

If he comes close to his top-end potential, he'll be the type of defenseman that's impossible to pry away from other teams.
raab has a point. Nurse is playing with that stud DET prospect in Ryan Sproul. Those numbers could be a product of his partner.
