Can't argue with that. We all know Henrique has the ability, and I believe Josefson has too. Tedenby is still an unknown. I was more referring to the later picks in the draft where mostly Lou and Conte tend to go with the "safe" pick (black, pietila, wohlberg, hoeffel and so on). It's pretty much a lottery in the latter rounds I know, but I'd prefer it if they'd pick a boom or bust (more highly skilled/prospect known for his offense/or however you want to put it) a little more often.
