I love the Thrower pick but people have to lower their expectations.
Wiz had 3 ACL surgeries before the age of 25

so lets calm down on the great wiz skating tho, do you even remember him? it was rough to watch at times.. but he had a mean first pass

I say keep the same expectations, some people are acting like hes 5"10 180 or something, while hes already at 200 pounds, and seems to like to rush up ice to create odd man rushes, likes to get dirty, and has a booming right handed shot

If anything, id hope he can become an even better wiz who was drafted in the 5th round , theres reasons people had Dalton ranked far before he actually went, its only beneficial to our prospect pool
