Didn't say they picked Seto based on Thornton. I was commenting that Seto had the playmaker he needed to score 30+ goals yearly, and he didn't make it with us.

Even when projected first liners and guys who have all the tools to be amazing 1st round pick ends up not living up to the expectations. This is on the player, not the organization.

It seems more obvious to me that we should be drafting out of the 1st round based on the interview process at the combine. We need to be drafting guys based on how motivated to adjust their game if needed to be a better player.
