but according to Pierre McGuire, Adam Larsson is the steal of the draft.

p.s. stupid lottery pick.

p.p.s. it looks like he had a draft blog. sorry if someone posted already.

p.p.p.s. wow! this kid got 69 points in 71 games in the WHL as a 16 year old kid! 3 points in 4 games as a 15 year old. I didn't know 15 year olds even played in the CHL. Outside of Taylor Hall. Not even Crosby played in the Q at age 15. even if it was only 4 games what's the story with this kid dropping so far down as the #134 pick?
edit: looks like Nugent-Hopkins played 6 games as a 15 y.o. although last I checked, he was picked 133 spots ahead of this kid.

edit 2: apparently he placed 2nd in the rookie of the year voting after... Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Still not sure how he dropped but stoked!
