Best after 3: for now probably Ryan Jones, although in the long run I like Gustafsson.
The thing is; (and Hannula was not an overager), they shouldn't be considered bad picks. Some of them played in the NHL, some in the AHL. At least they came over and tried. Guys like Walker and Sprunger? Those are bad picks. They never came over here.

Bring him in? He was a college player, they could have sent him to the AHL.
