We can trade our surplus to fill our weaknesses but drafting players to have some of everything is going against the get the best asset strategy. In the past 5 years teams have been going have size with skill and we have kept constant with BPA (except for Fischer lol) and that's why we are above average.
Just a theory!
No, we only have 6 spots for defencemen and the majority of those will be occupied with veterans. If we can't draft and develop offensive players we will never compete with the best in the league.
