Hamonic, Nelson, and Reinhart were all very good picks IMO. What a shame that Nelson didn't fall into our laps at #31 in '10
From all interviews with Stu, etc. sounds like they probably would have taken Pitlick anyways, they were elated to get him at that spot and he's said numerous times they had him ranked way higher than his draft position. Don't think they would have been expressing the same level of excitement if a fellow Minnesota prospect they probably watched just as much, yet had ranked higher than Pitlick, came off the board the pick literally right before.
Of course Nelson is looking like a beast now, but 'tis the nature of prospects. Interesting how Nelson is a '92 and Pitlick is a '91 as well.
