Comments on Tyson Barrie





I'd say that Bender had some great insight for our picks back then, because he DID have O'Reilly listed in the 1st round. And while he wasn't a fan of the Barrie pick, I think we can all give him a free pass.

Anywho, I found it interesting to go back and see what we all thought of our picks. Some of us were split on the O'Reilly selection, believing that he'd never amount to anything but a typical 3rd line C, but as of last season, he's proven the people who thought that wrong.
haha. That is interesting.

One thing that I didn't like about Barrie is that his family is completely loaded. I thought for sure there would be motivation issues, but obviously there isn't. He has been an excellent pick.
