And I can't really believe I am making points in favor of Spott for this as I think he treats draft picks like candy at Halloween sometimes.
But for the limited picks he has at times I like how we are taking chances with some of these players. He takes a chance on Gibson and he reports, hopefully MacInnis will report next year. Then there is Trouba which doesnt necessarily work out too. Being the organization we are, I feel we are able to take these chances for better or not.
And I don't think we need a Percy/Ceci type impact player. A solid shutdown or TWD that might not cost as much but still cost. Not looking for Kitchener to get that Tavares type player this year in a Strome/Schiefele kind of player.
I can't agree more...now imagine these golden late round picks with higher round picks that Spott missed out on because he traded them away??
