You can get players with defensive skills in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.
IMO, Zadorov is either going to be a stud #1 defenseman or a bust.
With the Flyers history drafting defenseman, I prefer not to gamble so much.
Would prefer Pulock, Morrisey or Ristolainen at #11.
I would not be ok with Pulock. He's all offense and physically more mature then most and it's just my opinion but has a much lower potential then many of the other guys talked about in this thread.
Btw I also do not agree with the comparison of Zadorov to Schenn and Grossmann. Compare their numbers from junior/development leagues and with his tools there is no reason Zadorov won't be a bigger pt producer then these two if everything goes well. Grossmann never put up more then 10 pts in a season and Schenn hit mid 20's his final season of juniors. Zad only has one season in the CHL and he already practically matched Schenn's best offensive output.
