Alright I have some sour grapes about this pick. While he will probably be fine and turn out to be a Martin Erat, I think we really missed the boat on Kerdiles. Granted, the story of the Ducks drafting him (hometown) is a good one, but I wish we had moved up to nab this guy as I truly believe he has the will and the talent to really excel in the NHL.

Not that I am disappointed in Aberg, as I believe he will also be a good player, but I view a guy like Kerdiles as more of a need for this team. I think Kerdiles is more NHL ready than Aberg is.
