I weighed our need for a forward but having Ragulin fall this far was just too much to pass up I felt.
Also, arrbez has officially departed, so he will be helping as much as he can, but for the most part I'll be making the selections from here on in.
Finally as a side note, I am in the market to move up for a pick later this round. PM me if you have a desire to move back.
And so the fall ends. I chose Maltsev over Ragulin at 135, shocked he fell so far. Excellent pick, he's such a stud of a defenseman. I was also going to trade up for him.
