There's a difference between underscouting and claiming that players didn't do enough. 18 is such a young age to draft anyway that we see so many busts that usually I wouldn't care but Nanne was never even the best player on this ice in a single game this year. If we wanted a throw away pick we could have just picked a name out of a hat from the top lines in Metro teams, 95% of those would have been a better pick IMO. I saw no upside to Nanne's game and don't expect him to have a career in hockey. Call me on it in 4 years if you want but I have grown up watching hundreds of better MN players go undrafted.
