Yeah a lot of teams skipped on him, and much like you described I know I've heard GMs that skipped him that have emphasized they regret it. Same with Couturier. The Flyers knew what Couturier had but didn't even bother to consider him because they assumed he'd be gone. When he was still available they nixed all of their draft plans and drafted him. I can't complain.
Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Or in this case, in the world of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
