DM should have been a little more aggressive in going after what he wanted. After Hayes was off the board they probably just decided to go with the next guy on their list which happened to be Visentin.
They probably thought they could have got him with their 2nd rounder, but why risk losing out on another player they wanted.
I would have preferred Charlie Coyle, Brad Ross or Calle Jarnkrok to Visentin, but what's done is done.
Perhaps. But you never know with prospects. With Niagra Visentin is 9-4-3 with a 2.60 GA and .910 SV %. I'm encouraged by that. We'll see in 3-4 years if he pans out. Young goaltending is certainly a need with this team.
