Looking realistically where we should be drafting (3-6 spot) puts in the range for a damn good defenseman in Adam Boqvist.

A dynamic offensive defenceman that can carry plays with the puck on his stick. A highly mobile and nimble skater that moves with fluidity, balance, and confidence. Utilizes an active stick and creates turnovers frequently. Could be more proactive in his own end, but has shown progression in understanding lanes and reading unfolding plays; most of his best defensive work comes through the neutral zone, as there is a lot less time and space to work with, and it is in those moments that Boqvist shines. Offensively, Boqvist is electric; he has the toolbox of a top line forward. Slick puckhandling ability paired with excellent vision and positional awareness makes him a dangerous threat every time he is on the ice. He also takes advantage of the attention and bodies he draws towards himself in creating space for teammates. All-in-all, Adam Boqvist is a complete offensive defenceman that knows how to get the puck from point A to the back of the net, and can make it happen all by himself.

Gifted offensively. Excellent skater, can change gears without hesitation & loves carrying puck, ISS Hockey 2017

With all the hype around Dahlin there appears to be a very good dman just sitting there for the picking.

Brady Tkachuk looking good if AB is gone...although nowhere near what we need like a top pairing guy
nobody forks...with the jesus
