We need a defenseman that can skate and run a powerplay.

We have no need for more defensive defensemen; Schenn, Coburn, Grossmann, are enough of that brand.

We have no one to move the puck out of our zone except Timmo.
Gustafsson is a second or third pairing PMD only.

This total disregard for an essential element to playing Lavi's offensive scheme is ridiculous.

No more centers need to be drafted as our 1st round pick.
We have too many already, we should trade one of our young centers and a pick for PMD.

If we draft offense again, and do not trade for a PMD then, I give up hope with Holmgren as our GM.

Well, Zadorov can sure skate better than most of the great players on the ice in the MemCup. He's been joining the rush at every opportunity.

Although they got killed last night, he was skating. He went in his corner, hit his man, got the puck up to the winger and was already exiting the zone in about two strides to join the rush. He plays the power play. He hits. He has great passing skills and a hard shot.

Dave Hunter compared him to Larry Robinson. You'd have to think hard about passing up a talent like that.

That said, size isn't everything. The best players last night were smaller guys like Boyle, Voynov, Krug and DelZotto.
