Yeah, I don't want to rush a kid that's still 17. That's crazy to think. You don't rush a kid that can be a game-changer. The thing I keep reading about him is "dynamic." That's what we needed. Rielly or Reinhart would have looked good too, but I think I wanted Dumba all along. It just seems like a great fit with Brodin. If those two can develop, we could have a monster top pairing for a long time.
