If/when Finn turns into a real NHL player its likely not going to be until 2017 and he will still be going through development/sheltering. There is so many things that can happen between now and then I don't know how you can say that.
Then I guess Yakupov, Galchenyuk, Rielly, Grigorenko, etc. aren't good picks either. Should have drafted a guy with NHL experience, eh?
