The Preds actually took a forward fairly high. Yet last year about when you'd expect a high forward pick to be making important contributions, we had nothing from that pick. No value. I didn't read the poll as "who would have been great value if things had been different and they actually helped the team." Although he did help for two years with a high of 26 goals, less than Hornqvist a far lower pick.
If the poll asked, which picks were the smartest for the Preds, I may have considered Radulov, except his immaturity and failure to respect his contracts leave that in doubt.
If he comes back and produces, this all changes of course. Or if we get something good in a trade.
