He passes the eye test in the videos I've seen of him. He looks incredibly skilled.
Still not sure about taking Pouliot over him but Shero seems to have a philosophy of loading up on D-Men in the draft, keeping the ones he likes most and flipping the other ones ala Whitney, Goligoski for guys like Kunitz, Neal, Niskanen, etc. It works so I can't complain too much.
I also remember being excited by the Espo pick and he busted big time and being kind of disappointed with the Morrow and Harrington picks and they look fantastic in hindsight. I guess you never really know until you get these kids in your system for a year or two. Worst part is that Forsberg went to Washington. That will make it sting way worse if he pans out and Pouliot doesn't.
