Trust them and enjoy the pick. He's clearly very happy to be a part of the organization.
I've watched him extensively and he's a special player and
could very well end up being much better than Joe Morrow.
I agree with you. I just think many here aren't familiar with him yet. The reaction to the Despres, Morrow and Harrington picks were similar and everybody loves them now that they are more familiar with the players and how good they are.
Our fans just have a winger obsession and it clashes with Shero's D-Man obsession.
