You can win the SC with an elite group of forwards and just a solid group of D-men and a good goalie but none of those 3 teams have anywhere close to the D corps they need be contenders so it's puzzling.
I am good friends with a Colorado fan and we talk hockey daily. He is pissed that they passed on Jones because they need a d-man. He said the only downside is that he is right handed and they are stacked with right handed d-men right now.

Even with Jones playing the right side I still do not know how you justify in todays NHL going for another elite center over an elite d-man. You can't win the cup without defense and colorado still doesnt have one...
