We need someone to move the puck and run a powerplay.
I value that more than a third line forward that I can get as a FA.
I agree. All things being equal they need to go with the PMD but at the end of the day it is more important to get someone that will contribute for 10-12 years with that 1st pick. I have no problem if Nurse only turns out to be another Coburn. In realty whoever they pick won't contribute for a few seasons.

You can target a specialist with the 2nd rd pick. Whether that is a PMD or a PF to mold for a few seasons.
