Go back and look at the top 5 players drafted the last, say 20 years and look at the defensemen vs forwards. Two stick out, Niedermayer and Pronger but they had way better numbers then Jones did. In the top 5, it is much better to draft a forward then a defenseman.

Take that aside, and look at how difficult it's been for the Predators to draft, trade for or sign a legitimate scorer. Those defending Poile for not drafting a scorer have said that well the team didn't draft in the top five to get that player. Now we have a chance.
