Who did they pick next? Jonathan-Ismael Diaby another Dman. Like you said if we want top offensive talent it needs to be drafted and Poile/Trotz do not seem to want to do it.
Most teams draft them or trade for them. Rarely do you see a good offensive talent sign with another team in the peak of his career.

Hossa and Parise come to mind. Hossa obviously wanted to play with other talented players. Parise had the hometown thing.
