We would rather gamble on some 4th line forward than a defenseman.
Where other teams see talent, we think BUST!!!!
Sorry, I do not buy it. It seems logical to think that sooner or later
they could find defensive talent in the 2-7 rounds, but I am not convinced.
I see Manning, Bourdon, Lauridsen as examples of what they look for in defenders.
These are not top six defenders, if they were we would not be as bad defensively.
They drafted 4 defensemen out of 7 possible picks last year. This theory of your's that they only draft forwards is off base. Otherwise they would have drafted 7 forwards.
Lauridsen was a 7th rounder and Manning was undrafted, getting any type of of NHL production is a plus. All three played in the NHL at certain points so they could be top 6 defenders. Bourdon was a regular a year ago.
