If you want the team to go BPA, you can't complain if they aren't drafting defensemen in the higher rounds.
It seems like most of the good dmen come outside the first round anyways. And, that's probably the problem; we usually trade those picks away.

Instead, we'll ..MAYBE..get two decent years out of Streit then he'll become a cap anchor...
Yeah, and what sucks is that, unless something dramatic happens in net...this team isn't a realistic contender right now. So around the time you'd expect their window to open, Streit will be entering his anchor years. It's pretty unlikely he'll be good at that age.
