I not-so-boldly predict that in a couple of years Konrad Abeltshauser will be the next "how did they get him so late in the draft" player on their team.

Your right about getting great pick in the late round since they got Sean Kuraly in the 5th round. He should be something special. The big problem is they can't turn their 1st or 2nd round pick into something really good until now(Hertl). But they still need to improve alot to be competitve(prospect wise) Too many miss and not enough home runs.
