I'm a dissenter and I'll explain why.
That article talks about the number of defensemen drafted that are still with their club. I don't have a problem with that. The big thing the article fails to discuss is what number of number one defensemen were drafted that are still with their same club that drafted them.
Number one defensemen don't just become available that readily. When they are available, it's usually at a ransom or in the case of Timonen, you're getting a desperate club just willing to get anything back in return.
The article is also a fluff piece, not written by a beat writer, but by someone who is paid by the Philadelphia Flyers to write good things about the club. Does anyone honestly think that Anthony San Fillipo is going to write anything negative about the club? Of course he isn't.
