I can't see Pouliot being a reach at 22. I think he may have been at 8 but I don't think he would have been available at 22. A lot of scouting services called him the best passing D-Man in the draft etc. Calgary was rumored to love the kid and I think someone said Buffalo also liked him with one of their two 1st rounders that were higher than 22.

I personally would have taken Grigorenko or Forsberg but I don't get too mad when they don't pick the kid I want. I really won't care that we passed on them as long as Pouliot turns into a very good player. The only thing that will make me upset is if this kid is a total bust and Forsberg and/or Grigorenko turn into all star forwards.
