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.
Teubert was picked where he was ranked. Forbort too.

And who cares if he's a 5-6 year project? Not many defensemen make the NHL before 24, and if they do, they still have consistency issues often
