This, so much.

I remember following the 2010 draft and losing my mind at the fact that Fowler was falling so far down the board, despite his top four projection and his appearance on the super powered Spitfire team that was coming off a Memorial Cup win. When Anaheim grabbed him I was distraught. Knowing nothing of Gormley at the time I spent the rest of the night complaining to any of my friends that would listen.
