Remember when everyone freaked out about Eriksson? No one drafted him in the last draft, even though he was so good the Flyers were stupid to let him go. This really isn't not a big deal, whether it was an oversight or not.
I think it is a big deal when they have a kid they considered a third round talent and compared him to Claude Giroux, but then ultimately decided a kid who has no shot at amounting to anything was more worthy of a pick.
