I love the pick. I've seen this kid before, but wasn't sure what kind of future he had.

I'd rather go for top talent then be so harsh on the organization for not going for the best scoring winger.

This tells me that (A) Jagr is going to happen or (B) a trade is lurking upon on.

Why would we keep stocking up on quality defensive prospect if this wasn't true?
Don't see this having much relevance to Jagr tbh. Any winger picked wouldn't be NHL ready for years and Jagr in all likelihood would only be in the NHL for one or two seasons. I think, again, that Shero is going back to where he's had success - drafting and developing defenseman. Hard to be upset about the pick when they continue to pan out time and time again.
