That's all I'm saying. I don't claim to be a good enough scout to say where he should have gone other than to say he doesn't look like he should have slipped to the 7th.
So why was Cody Ceci drafted in the top 15? His skating and puck skills are none more impressive than what I've seen from Wikstrand. And I'm just being lazy, there's more examples. And I never said anything about the top 15.
