I think Pulock is what this defense needs : a offensively minded defenseman.
Since the loss of Carle, this defense has struggled to move the puck out of its zone.
We can not score offensively because we play in our own zone too much.

Pulock may not be the fastest skater but, he has offensive ability and thats what our defense lacks.
Josh Morrisey would be a good backup option if Pulock is gone at 11.

We have shot blocking and toughness, but skill we lack.
Mezzaros will never be healthy enough to last a full season we need to replace him.
And Coburn is not an offensive defenseman.

Other teams value offensive minded defensemen why we don't mystifies me.
We do not need more defensive defensemen, and you do not need to pick one in the first round anyway.

The win now mentallity of this franchise has forced us to trade away depth, for stay at home- two way defensemen.
I would rather try to draft a PMD than keep trading top line forwards and picks for them.

We need a change in philosophy to compete in todays NHL.
To constantly think BPA when we are stocked with top end centerman
and have no top end or offensive defenseman developing is just insane.
