I certainly feel that there were better players available, but maybe others on this board with more knowledge can tell me if I am way off. My feeling is that they loved the size, but gambled because one had missed most of the year,and I think they took the other as a work in progress. Remember, they are still only sixteen and will probably improve, but based on production, the Sting have to be towards the bottom of the league with the performance of their rookies.
Agreed, Hargrave is starting to develop...still shy and needs to be more of a power forward that the "vision" intended. As for AR and JA, they have a long long way to go. If Hargrave is knocking at the door, AR and JA are still around the corner.
There will always be players who look good against their equal age level but fail to make the jump to the step midget to jr....jr. to pro.
