Timmonen will retire, what will we do then ???
The point that you are missing is that regardless of what defensemen we draft, the hole left by Timmonen is still going to be there and no draft pick will be there to address that short term gap. NO defenseman, including Seth Jones, will be second highest scoring defenseman in the NHL in two years. Whoever we we select is very likely 4-5 seasons from being a true difference maker.
