It makes sense why Percy didn't make it, there's just way too much high end talent on the blueline. It's good to see the depth in Canada.
Yeah, I really liked what I saw from Percy. Quiet, efficient defender.

With Murray's injury I thought there'd be an opening for him, but I guess not.

He wasn't a 1st rounder and doesn't score enough points in London to appease the box-score watchers.

I think that about sums it up.
