A handful of 7th round successes when compared to the hundreds that have been drafted in that category isn't very promising. If you want to talk about our track record with 7th rounders, then you can't include Boyle, Winnik or Niemi. Wingels was also a 6th rounder, so you have Pavs (03), Nabby (94), Murray (99), and Demers (08). That's 4 in nearly two decades. Considering we usually pick up multiple 7ths, it's not that impressive.
suter? no way. might have been unlikely before but now it's super unlikely to impossible. this could be the biggest move of our cap-constrained off season. is it enough?
Don't kid yourself, it was nearly impossible even before the Stuart signing.
