That's great to hear.

My post wasn't necessarily a commentary on Price as it was on Larkin.
I think a guy with that kind of size, and apparently with good wheels, at that size (6'5" and 220 pounds) is an intriguing prospect.

I guess I was thinking if he was kind of off the radar because he grew up in Italy.

At any rate, I'm definitely excited about Price as a prospect. I think last seasons draft has the potential to be the best ever for the 'Nucks organization.

It seems like it has been a really, really long time since we have had this many prospects to be excited about, or at least have the potential to develop into serious prospects.

Throw in Tanev and Oberg who could develop, maybe even Sweatt, and it should be fun to follow some of these guys progression next yr.
