Picking some guys after round #1 is a crap shoot.
Just hoping to find a decent player, not a value pick, IMHO.
You might get lucky, I like my odds better if I invest in a
better prospect.
This makes zero sense. If the organization thinks nobody in the first round is a #1 Dman, why should they draft a Dman if there are better players around?

Your crusade for a defenseman, any defenseman, is really odd. It's to the point where it seems you're perfectly willing to draft a Dman in the first round "just because," or trade for one even if it makes the team worse. What's the point?

You're currently reflecting the organization's main issue: a lack of patience.
