With no other changes, our defense becomes

Timonen Schenn
Sbisa Grossmann
McBain Lauridsen/Gus

Admittedly this is an extremely soft top 6, but at the same time it is cheaper, adds speed, and maximizes our flexibility with other assets. Now, with the 11th pick we don't necessarily need a PMD but rather just the best defenseman available (or BPA and trade for the best defenseman available)
I would definitely do that. I just don't know if it is realistic
