The Fischer pick seems solid, though it's tough to tell on him vs. say Summers or Sanguinetti. But of course, that's the essence of the draft.

Very happy about Maxwell, and Carle could turn out as well.

White seems like a good pick, though many decent players were still on the board (Marcinko?), and we did give up an extra pick for him. The only thing I know about Valentinov is he's 6'2", 202 lbs, played 2 games in the RSL this year, and has a name that rolls of your tongue. Hopefully Timmins and our Russian scout know something we don't. Grabovsky anyone?

And then in the last round, taking a chance on a guy whose stock obviously fell a lot due to injury this past year seems like a good move. Popov seemed like the better pick, but we shall see.
