He was stuck behind more developed players in LA so this is good. I am curious who passed on him before we could take him considering we had picked Finley earlier.

An earlier poster said he has shifted to a more conservative game, though I remember a good puckhandler his draft year, definitely a puck moving defenseman. I still think this is now Hickey vs Ness for a roster spot, but will see.

I am very OK with getting him this way. I am still confused about burning a pick on Ness, but that is history. I hope Hickey works out.
