    Just curious, is there anyone in this years draft, infact even last years draft that is a pure offensive defenceman, someone that can put a large points production from the blue-line. Just wondering, most i hear about seem to be reliable defencemen but none are too offensive?

    Ben Shutron is more of a Defensemen then Sanguinetti and still puts up points not as many as Sanguinetti though.

    Sanguinetti should just try to play offense.

    yeah...there's some kid in this draft who could put up some strong offensive numbers in addition to playing shut-down defense:

    E - R - I - K
    J - O - H - N - S - O - N

    He might not have a Phanuef-like rookie season, but he could be a Norris finalist for the next 15 years with Dion. But he'll likely be in the AHL next year...unless he opts to go to Minnesota for 1 year....

    Wouldn't he either have to play for the big club, play in the CHL or play college. I do not think you are aloud to play in the AHL until you are 20.

    Jakub Kindl from last years draft...but he's already been drafted. I think Sanguinetti is the most purely offensive d-man this year.

    That only applies to players who are already in the CHL.

    Carle is undersized, but he screams Mathieu Schneider... I think he'll drop to the 3rd, but has big steal potential.
