Posted this interview in the lockout thread, Rick says he wanted to draft Martinook two years prior at the end of the draft when he was in Nashville.

Remember that time that GMDM spent the entire summer pumping up Gonch to anyone who would listen, even if they didn't ask about him? The whole "We've gotta play him or we're gonna lose him" thing?
