Not with me. When I took him at 418 last year it was March and Weber was obviously on his way to a top 5 Norris year and taking that into account Sturm was able to convince everyone he was worthy of pick 418. Now he's going almost 100 picks higher for no reason at all and the same guys who said he was not 418 worthy are fine with an almost 100 pick jump to 324 for no reason at all. This is a guy with 4 relevant years, no Norris, and no Cup going before Dave Burrows, Neil Colville, and Brian Rafalski. I don't think so. This is the ATD, not the four year draft.

Off topic I am fine with Stamkos as a 4th line center though.
