I think if you guys wanted someone close to the NHL, thats your man. He is an overager.
Do I think there were better forwards left on the board? Yes, I do. I dont think Pearson is a goal scorer, he is a solid all-around player and probably more of a passer.
You guys need scoring on the wing still. Therefore, I would have gone with any of these guys instead:
Aberg - pure goal-scorer
Di Giuseppe - more creative than Pearson and still has upside
Kerdiles - a bit boom or bust but still more upside than Pearson
So not a horrible pick, but you had better options.
