Who knows, he might be the next huge D man to make a mark but I suspect he's the next Ian Forbes. It's like a decade or later and I'm still mad about that pick. That was an unbelievably deep draft that year and we wizzed that pick away by picking up Forbes. The next time you are bored head over to Hockey Data BAse and check out some of the amazing talent we didn't get. I realize that every year and in every situation you can generally find guys in leater rounds that surprise, but come on, that was a fantasitic year and we picked FORBES in the second round? end rant.
my mistake, i thought Lauridsen was in the Q
