The one thing about Dumba that is concerning is you can't teach hockey IQ. You can have the tools but if you don't have the toolbox, it's hard to build one.

After that Bussieres is meh, Draeger and Gilmour is meh, Gunnarsson is an overager and might be a decent pick, Bertschy has looked bad and Nanne was a token pick. While I understand that the draft was a bunch of projects, it doesn't look like are going to be anything special.

BTW I would have loved Forsberg, Grigs or Trouba over Dumba.
