Sure, LHD is kind of weak too, but D overall is pretty strong right now so I'd like to have some added RW depth.

Not signing him is a little odd, although perhaps they're hoping to get some great guys in the top 3 rounds this year and don't want extra spots towards the 50 contract limit being taken up.

So, the 2011 draft has produced:
Round 1 - Mark Scheifele, C - signed
Round 2 - no pick
Round 3 - Adam Lowry, LW - signed
Round 3 - Brennan Serville, D - NCAA
Round 4 - Zachary Yuen, D - not signed
Round 5 - Austen Brassard, RW - signed
Round 6 - Jason Kasdorf, G - NCAA
Round 7 - Aaron Harstad, D - NCAA?
Unless the player is a double overager any player drafted this year will not be taking spots towards 50 contract limit (even if signed, unless they make the NHL/AHL team).
