The fact is that defensemen taken early are making the grade today. The scouting in recent years has improved greatly. If there is a defenseman on the Flyers board at #11 and they take him, he should be a player for them.
I am all in favor of a defenseman as the pick at #11.
It is time to refurbish this defense, they retooled the offense.
It is time to catchup with the better defensive teams in the league
by drafting top defensemen.
