I probably did have you mistaken for another poster who rips on the Forbort pick every chance he gets, mainly due to Tarasenko being in the NHL now and Forbort still being in college.

While it is possible for him to be another Ellerby (who was a projected top 10 defenseman in his draft class), I see a difference in their games. Forbort seems more composed on the ice. Maybe not so much in last years WJC, but he's getting better. Highlights from last night:

Forbort's wrister lead to UND's second goal. Looked good walking the line on the blueline and getting his shot through a screen. My only concern with Forbort is him spending another season at UND. He needs to be in Manchester next season.
