Mika Zibanejad is the real deal.

Again I have no idea who the Sens would have selected between these two guys, however I would give the edge to Zib.
So while you believe Zib was the worst case, I'm not sure the Murrays or Dorion agree with you.
It was Strome.
I think it was bdp that said they wanted him, and I do remember reading about the "worst case scenario" which is what happened.
I think people are projecting quite a bit here. All that is missing is the "We are surprised he was still available" comments.
