Dmen can be drafted with later picks and lots of times they turn out better. #1 centers can usually only be acquired through the draft and usually with only high picks.
So if we have a choice between a potential #1 center and #1 D - I go with the center every time.
In this draft, the 2nd round dmen are just as talented as the top ranked guys.
Also - lol at some of you for Alzner comments. His game has morphed under Oates. He is asked to jump up and support the rush and attack in offensive zone much more and he has thrived. He is great at the transition game and has a great 1st pass. Seriously why comment if you haven't watched much of a player?
