Agreed, for sure.

Wasn't the sexiest looking move but, far from a bad one. The guy I probably wanted at the time, Nicklas Jensen, will probably be a Brouwer type player anyway... in 3 or so years. The only guy I would've wanted in the late teens to high twenties was Mark McNeill and he wasn't going to slide any further.

Atta boy GMGM on this one, wouldn't mind seeing a similar move this year with the Caps' own 1st rounder, unless they can package both their picks together to get one of the top forwards.
