Yeah, agreed. Not trying to slight Lepisto at all, just that he was practically penciled in as the 7th Dman once we acquired him.
In contrast, I'm saying it will be interesting to see how this new crop of rookies fares, compared to one another, the rest of the players and the players from the previous training camp.
