I suspect so. And at the time, Pogge was a legitimate blue chip prospect with all the awards and praise to go along with it.

I thought somehow trading Rask would be left out of the discussion in the same way when a toilet has overflowed onto a bathroom floor people tend not to bring in buckets of water to add more to the obvious problem.

Still, I literally shouted at the broadcast of his trade louder than I had when we selected him. Best and worst moment of Draft watching life. I was praying Rask would be a Leaf after that WJC...Blah,blah,blah...
