Is this a fair assessment or am i way off lool, i'm just curious
According to a poster on HF that interviewed Duncan Siemens, they had told Siemens they were going to pick him. Then Couts dropped and they felt they couldn't pass on him. Simon Nolet, their QMJHL scout told RDS they were surprised he fell to 8th because they had him ranked higher.
