I loved Vail before the draft, during the draft and after the draft, but as weak some believe the 2012 draft, Vail didn't deserve even an Honourable mention in the 1st round. Lacks top elite talent, everybody pencil him at best as a 3rd line centerman IF he makes it. Not what you're looking for in a 1st round.

For sure, people might come up and say that in retrospect, Vail's does have a better career than some of the 1st rounders.....forgetting to say that so will some of the 2nd rounders....and surely some of the 3rd as well.
