....and all I have to say about your short and pointless message is that it's obvious that you didn't read mine very well. Nowhere did I say he'd "produce as much as a second rounder should". I said he was ranked in the second round in his draft year. If he doesn't produce as a second rounder should, I'll have no reason to look like a fool.

Also, I've been saying on this board since as far back as the middle of last season that I felt that Pederson was a bust as a 1st rounder. I've also said he was our worst 1st rounder since Micheal Pelech. But, as an OHLer, he isn't a bust at all.

Had we a second round pick last year, and took DeAngelo in the 1st (he was still on the board when we picked Pederson) and used that 2nd rounder on Pederson, I don't think many on these boards would be critisizing him as much as they have been. It's the fact he was our 1st rounder and the expectation that comes with being a 1st rounder that has been a lightning rod for critism.

Sterk and Bailey may be better than him now but that could change before their OHL careers are over. You never know.
