Just imagine Latendresse instead of Price and some other guy who isn't in the league probably drafted in Lats spot.
Esposito isn't really a "French" player. He is like many from allophone families who are Bilingual or even trilingual.
Having said that, I was pro-Angelo Esposito his entire career since I becamse super-impressed when I saw him playing AA with boys older than him at age 12........until.....the last few months before the draft, when I sadly had to concur that his stock had really dropped.
I'm happy with McDonaugh and even more happy that Esposito was not available at #22 where he might have been a sentimental pick over MaxPac, though maybe I am underestimating Timmins here.
