Instead of throwing stones at the Wild for picking the kid, why not just feel happy for Louie Nanne? Here's his quote in Russo's column...
And Burke got the best player in the draft too right? Player draft quotes mean little or less, if his game had ever been worthy of his position I would have no problem, but I have seen him since peewees and unless he drastically improves his lateral mobility/all around skating to fit his shooting style, there is not much upside to his game at the AHL or NHL level.
