I think Bourdon was a good pick if he wanted a D-man. He was ranked highly by the ISS and showed a lot of promise. TSN thought Staal was better, but some thought Bourdon would be better. All in all, he could've done worse.

The problem is that Kopitar was a no-brainer. It was the equivalent of picking Ladislav Smid when Malkin is still on board. There were a lot of biased, dumb GMs that day and Nonis joined their ranks.
