It's Going to be a Defenseman

Yes, I'm a bit disappointed that we didn't get the number one pick. Stamkos would have been an immense help to Kovalchuk, but I think the Czar has proven that he can take of himself just fine. For the time being Kovy will have to continue being his own center while we snatch up a top defenseman like Drew Doughty, Alex Pietrangelo, or Zach Bogosian. Which is exactly what we need, in case you haven't noticed.

All of this complicates the matter of Brian Campbell. Should we still throw millions and millions at him this summer if we get an offensively skilled defenseman like Doughty? Would the money be better spent on a high-producing forward like Ryan Malone?* What do you kids think?

*Sign Ryan Malone!
