There's obviously much yet to be decided, but Pouliot's going to be under a microscope because he was an

Ok, this stuff really, really annoys me. What board? Whose board? Just because the national collection of scouting services had Pouliot a whole, what, 8 picks lower (?), he becomes some massively unconventional pick? What about all the other teams that had Pouliot in their Top-10 (which there were)? Are they just out to lunch?
It's been said before and I'll say it again. If every team released their Top-30, there would be a massive amount of people going "Huh?? What are they thinking," just because it would contrast with the general consensus lists generated by a mass scouting services. Just silly..
