I tend to agree. I am a lot less enthusiastic about this pick in round 2 than I am about Trouba at #9. I hope that Chevy and his scouts don't establish a pattern of reaching for tough grinder types of players, and end up with too many 3rd and 4th line grinders in the system. A lot of these types are available in lower rounds, and through trades and free agency. Every successful organization needs to hit the occasional home run in lower rounds (like Datsyuk and Zetterberg).
