Looking back the skills and sense were there, I let our horrible drafting of the past influence my opinion and that was wrong.
Yeah I totally get being nervous about the pick. He did seem similar in some ways to other guys the Rangers picked before, but he was coming from a better school and going to a better school at least.

Just funny how he was just so much out of left field, how seriously upset people were that he liked high school musical and tap dancing, and now here he is jumping right into the NHL and will probably put up 40+ points as a rookie, projecting to be at least a 2nd line center
