All good things come to those that wait. So when are we getting Corey Perry?

Which to me kind of says that they never did their homework well enough to determine where in their minds the gaps of talent in the draft existed. By that I mean these are what we think are the top say 10, 20, 30, or 40 players in the draft (pick whatever number you want) and if one of these guys is available and we are picking slightly below where we expect him to go, we will move up to get him.

Dean and his scouts obviously think a lot of Forbort and did some homework there. Now he may not pan out, but you know they didn't move up to get him on just a whim.
