Now with that 3rd rounder, would the Isles continue tradition and take a chance on someone like Nichushkin who could fall despite being a top-10 talent? Could it be Petrov 2.0 or is it worth the risk? This is assuming Nichushkin does indeed fall.
I think our system is to the point where we can take those later round chances.
Also I share your thought on Ristolinen
