And seriously, why in the world would you want Bjugstad? He's clearly not on the same tier as the top-10, and the history of Minnesota high school players is downright terrible.
Yea, TJ Oshie and Blake Wheeler are playing horribly in the NHL these days...
RECENT history isn't against Minnesota HS players at all. Yes, in the 90's and early this decade the talent was thin, but times have changed in level of talent being produced here.
As for Bjugstad, the only reason he rates lower, is because he is considered more of a project. His ceiling is every bit as high if not higher than several in that same range of players expected to be available at #9.
