Not overly thrilled with this pick.
Probably a guy who won't turn pro until 2015, and he's going to a very poor college program that went 9-21-3 last season.
Given that there were several pretty highly-regarded WHL defenders still available - Madaisky, Davidson, and especially Rutkowski - going that route would have made more sense.
In general I don't like drafting HS players - the bust rate is enormous because the level of competition is so low and it's really hard to scout. Run-of-the-mill players look amazing because they're dominating against terrible opponents.
