Just some thought...

So, we all were surprised that Vatanen chose (?) #45.

Why? Even if we are not giving younger players low numbers, this is not the case (there is basically no difference between 44 and 45, and some guy neamed Beleskey got 39 right away Sbisa got 5 also.

So.. why 45?

I just had this crazy thought in my mind that maybe Bob knew all the way we will sign Souray? Maybe Cogs and Saku was calling him long ago.

Sami is a fan and managment favorite (or so) prospect, and would definately get a chance to choose a number at some point. Maybe for now they just reserved #44 for Souray. Then Vis trade would make at least 5% more sense..

What do you think?
