Anyway, with 4 Dmen chosen out of 6 draft picks this year and 4 Dmen out of 7 draft picks last year it looks as though Holmgren and the organization have FINALLY seen the light.
Hopefully, it results in less goal lights in the future....

Considering none of them have made an NHL roster yet, I'm going to go with no. Simply drafting defensemen doesn't mean anything if they don't stick.
