Now that the pick is history we're all hoping that Samuelsson becomes a regular NHLer who can impact games positively. In a few years we'll know if any of the three from above would have been a better choice.
He's been talked about for days as the potential ironic selection by Cam Neely and the Bruins at 24. I had him at 21. Redline had him at 24 and thought he was one of the ten top forwards available.

ISS had him at 27 and Mckeens had him at 32.

This was not a reach.
