I'm not so sure about that, he could end up better than Murray and pretty much every D in this draft, that's how things work sometimes. That said I doubt that Montreal takes him at 3, not sure if Columbus takes him at 2 or even the Islanders or TO taking him at 4 or 5. The bottom line is that we got a blue chip prospect at the position that we needed to fill probably the most in our entire organization. No matter how you slice it, we scored and scored big.
