but the organization goes another year without picking a dynamic offensive player in the first round.
I did hear Poile is trying to pick up a second round pick, we'll see what comes of that.
How many dynamic players are available when picking at the 18th spot? I think those expectations are unrealistic. Dynamic players are Hall and Seguin, Kane, Ovechkin, Crosby, Crosby, etc. I don't think there was anybody we were gonna get at 18 that would've been dynamic. Etem maybe but that was a stretch at best. And don't get me wrong, but wouldn't you consider 20 points in 10 games to be dynamic?
