He's the perfect regular season compliment for Vezina, with the ability to start and steal games in the post-season if necessary.
Al Rollins is a pretty nice selection. I had him second on my list if Gusev was taken.
That's the little disadvantage of trading up in the first half. I'm like VanI, thinking I can get strong value in the later round anyway, but those one/two ''dropper'' by round, the O'Connor, Hadfield and Rollins are pretty tough to get your hands on, has you have other needs to fill. To get one of those guys (O'Connor), I had to select him before finishing my fourth line, my third pairing D and my backup G.
Pit is making a good job snapping dropper at his selection and assemble them together. Seems like the kind of plans that work perfectly.
