Many pundits are saying that he was a bit of a steal at the position we selected him at. I'm hoping so - watching video of him, he seems to have some real drive to win.

EDIT: here were his draft rankings as of June 2nd:

•ISS: 47
•CSS (N.A. skaters): 24
•McKeen's: (n/r in top 30)
•The Hockey News: 45
•The Scouting Report: 35
•Craig Button (May): (n/r in top 60)
•Hockey Prospectus: 61

•"Consensus" aggregate of several services (May): 43
