Halak has shown a good deal of promise... but it just hurts to see Kostitsyn out there after watching guys like Richards, Getzlaf, Brown, and Parise take command of key roles both on the ice and in the dressing room at such young ages.
A.Kost had a key role last year for the last 60 games, 1st line, 1st PP etc.

He may or may not end up as good as those guys, but it would be dumb to call him a bad pick.

You can name any team in the nHL and I can find you a draft where they missed a star player or more.
