He was drafted after his first year in the NCAA. I knew about him, the leafs knew about him, and evidently so did Philly.

I wanted him when we took Nieves, as a kid out of Baldwinsville I knew about him as well.

I can't remember NYR using a draft pick on a kid that has already proven himself with a year in the NCAA. High school kids recently, headed to the NCAA or (In Miller's case) the OHL.

Carolina got a kid in the ECAC by the name of Danny Biega who is going to be a great player in this league. The Canucks got Ben Hutton whose stock is rising.

Greater point is, we've got guys following high schoolers, but not the correct NCAA teams. The guys we have picked up from the NCAA have been from Alaska, Nebraska, completely random. Union has a great program. They play solid defense, quick counterattacks, and they clear the crease. Made the frozen four last year.
