But, yeah, he should turn out well. I was looking at his attributes, and he has some really good grades already.

MacKinnon jumped 8 points after 1 year, so I have some hope for him. Plus, he's a center when I already have Stamkos and Stastny, so I'm ok letting him develop first for a bit then deciding if I'll trade Stastny or move someone to a wing.

I've never seen him not rated 1st in year 1, so I'm actually curious as to whether the first two picks shuffled their priorities.

I'm not complaining though, he's unreal. Hurt, but unreal.

I drafted shinkaruk because at the time i had just done a offline beagm... -__-

and he jumped to a 75 after one year and then 84 the next. And this was all simmed and on superstar and the hardest mode so i was like cool i got this. And yeah, shinkaruk progressed from a whopping 62 all the way to a 63 this season. Also traded gerbe to calgary who then jumped to an 85.. for the 6th pick, who i picked morrissey with, who in offline beagm does the same thing murray did, 63-75-81 and neither murray nor morrissey has progressed more than 3 points. And same with barkov who i got 8th.
