You again?

Vlasic was drafted in the 2nd round after said 2nd round pick was acquired for a struggling goaltender.

He came in, won a spot in camp and up until last season had played every game but 1. He suffered his first injury of his career and still played 60+ games in the season.

Kindly name another 19 year old 2nd round draftee defenseman to come into the league and play in every game(but 1) for the first 3 years of his career.

Name a 2nd round D to come in and play every game(but 1) for the first 3 years of his career.

Name a 19 year old D to come in and play every game(but 1) for the first 3 years of his career.

I know he's not like your favourite player (who you also dump on, hilarious btw there's a reason he was on the olympic team ) but to discount the good fortune that Wilson had by making Vlasic his player at that pick would be as erroneous as it would be foolish.
