bah! he's only rated a 6.0 D. Nothing to see here

He's second in the WHL in scoring with 28 pts in 13 games

All 4 of the top scorers are on the same team. Kamloops Blazers should probably win it all with that production

How long until Toronto fans hear about him?

It seems like a good gamble to pick an overager putting up good numbers in junior hockey in the 7th round. I like overagers or goalies in the 6th-7th round.

One of these undersize centers was bound to pay off for the Avs, looks like Colin Smith is it :handclap:

Right after Kadri becomes a consistent 60 point top 6 threat and before Percy, Finn, Blacker and Gardiner all become #1 defenders with elite two-way potential.

Thankfully pigs will fly, hell will freeze over and we'll all die on 12/21/12 so none of this will really matter.
