The year ramholt was drafted, well following year (03-04) in the QMJHL he put up 36 points in 51 games. 27 of those points being assist so you can understand sutter and his staffs thinking. They probably figured they were getting a good d man. But his play since that year offensively has not even close and I'm not even sure where he is now.
Shea weber the year he was drafted (02-03) only put up 18 points in 70 games And in (03-04) put up only 20 in 60 games both those years in the WHL. That same year (03-04) Ramholt had more points in less games.
While stats aren't everything the scouts at the time and d sutter probably saw a brighter future in ramholt then they see today. So sutters choice or ramholt over weber could be justified.
