Based on the rankings you may be right, but I think had the Kings not taken him he might have tumbled. A lot of teams are hesitant to draft such limited players in the first round.

I am no scout, but I saw this kid play in the ECHL the year after he was drafted and he was just pitiful, especially for a first round pick. I wondered why the Kings sent him to the ECHL (almost unheard of with first round picks) but after watching him play it was apparent he was nowhere close to being even an AHL caliber player.

I was happy to see him moved while he still had a little bit of value, although I think the big thing EDM was getting back in that deal was the first rounder.
