I know people are down on Shane O'Brien, but he's a legitimate NHL defenseman that has played 300 games in the NHL. He also was traded for a first round pick a couple of seasons ago.

Quite frankly, if Sauve becomes a solid NHL defenseman of any sort, we should be pleased with the pick.

Again, how many 2nd rounders go on to have any sort of NHL career? I would guess it would be less than 25%. O'Brien and Sauve are different players, but if Sauve is able to forge a similar career, that would have to be seen as a success.
