I bet there would have been a ton of hype surrounding him in that situation.

We've had more time to get excited about Rakell, and his performance during the couple of games he has doesn't hurt. Less with Lindholm, but Anaheim made it clear they love the kid, and then he impressed during rookie camp, and we got to see him in the AHL where he seemed to quickly become Norfolk's best defenseman. It was a small sample size, but a very encouraging one, especially considering his age.
Did they ever say who our 12th pick would have been if fowler wasn't available. I had a suspicion it would have been emerson etem who we got at 29th which was a drop also.

also dead on in what you said.
