while we dont know how these players will pan out its good that Etem, palmieri, schultz, vatanen, holland, wagner, gibson are developing well to date
Who was head of scouting during that period? I thought the Smid pick in '04 was a pretty good one considering they could have picked Thelen who was expected to go around then. But yeah other than that the '04 draft was all bad as well.
