And to add to the above, DF doesn't need to be DD...but hopefully he is good enough to be his partner for the next decade...5 goals 15 assists while logging 20+ hard mins would be great.
Yeah, that was definitely me. I didn't like Forbort pick back then and I still don't. Lombardi also took Hickey and Teubert higher than they should've gone, remember that. Etem or Tarasenko would've been the right pick. It's easy to say that now but I've been saying it since draft night, even though Emerson Etem hasn't done much for Anaheim, at least he's dressed up for them. We can't say the same for Forbort. I hope it works out for us but it would be nice to have Tarasenko in the lineup right now.

Forbort will probably stay at North Dakota, which sucks for us, because that means he probably won't crack the lineup for another 2-3 years lol. He was picked in 2010.... We're looking at a 5-6 year project here.
