They ignore BPA if he is a defenseman. All I am asking is some balance in drafting.
If you have two players essentially equal in value, why not pick one that fills a need?
Why stockpile more talent (Forwards) at the expense of the defense?
Is our defense so great, filled with #1 defenders that no rookies would ever be able
to crack the lineup???
Statistically speaking our defense wasn't nearly as horrible as you think they were. They were just made to look worse by horrible goaltending. Many of the problems came from the forwards being clueless in their own end and a bad breakout plan that was never adjusted.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
