Oh well, atleast DL made up for it with a great pick in Voynov. VV should be in the NHL next season. Lets just pretend we got VV with the #13.
He may not be the second coming but I wouldn't go that far. He is good for what he is and is still developing into a punishing stay-at-home defenseman. We are still a very long way away from labeling this kid a bust. He has been 20 years old for 10 days... We are certainly abundant in potential top 4 offensive/puck-moving defensemen, but we only have a couple of stay-at-home defenseman, and even less with the potential to make it to the #4 slot. Let him develop and see what he will become.
