Redmond certainly had a great 3-year peak and the individual awards to show for it. And had one decent full season in Montreal, a cup and a bit part in another cup. Too bad injuries kept him from doing any more than that. A relatively short career marked by a great shot as a finisher.

The thing is, he plays right wing, by far the deepest position in this draft. And it's hard to see what he would have brought to the main draft, how he ought to have gone there, except as an extra forward for another injury-prone winger. he's not one of the guys who definitely should have gone in the main draft imo.

That said... because only injury appeared to stop him from all-time glory, his demonstrated skill and performance while healthy has to make him a top scoring threat in this draft! ... Labatt might be forming themselves one of the best first lines.
