Great pick. Maybe he becomes something, and maybe he doesn't... but I love taking these 'unknown' european kids late in the draft who impress the scouts.

When you take a look at Pashnin (Rus), Hagelin(Swe), Fasth (Swe)- all late picks who have the potential to play for the rangers one day... you have to be a little impressed... again, maybe all play for us,maybe none do, but to me - this is where scouts earn their paychecks...
