I mean very little by this, but that Bruins scouting group we love to talk so much about took Alexandrov 13 points higher than Lucic. And yes, I know Lucic was projected as a third-rounder, my points are just that the draft is such a crapshoot and the best you can hope for is that "bad" picks like Alexandrov get balanced by lucky later picks.
