That having been said what they had wrong was thinking he'd be available to us. Clearly Winnipeg's GM was pretty fond of the guy using the 7th pick. I can't really remember now but didn't a bunch of folks actually get surprised by him being picked 7th?
They had a lot of players ranked ahead of him "The experts and scouts", it was a early pick, but he was still thought as a mid to late 1st rounder.
