Tarasenko happened to be picked by Blues and the only relevancy it has is that it was with our #1 pick. 15 teams passed Tarasenko, yet it is somehow only Ottawa that has seemed to make a mistake. It wasn't a mistake since Murray doesn't draft Russians, and our haul of Turris is much better than many teams who passed up Tarasenko and the team around that pick, because Rundblad became a very good prospect.
