Two late picks for big defensemen who would be very useful if they make it even as third pair d.
Had I drafted, I would have used the same philosophy. In the run up to the draft, I repeatedly called for the drafting of kids with superior talent who fell because of injuries, low competition or small size, and not because of their talent.
In the first round you have to take a player that translates well to the Pro game and fits your club identity. While having high upside.
Miller fits that.
In later rounds going boom or bust is good.
I agree. We got a group of players with potential to boom.
Miller will be serviceable at the least. His only queation mark are the concussions in his past.
Sucks we had to lose Grachev. But he requested to be traded. Cant get much value. We managed to get a player that has potential. Reminds me of Yogan.
Not a lot to be disappointed in. Unless we traded up, not sure what more could be asked for.
