It's one thing if the guy goes right after him or if you know that Dale was strongly considering Kopitar vs Skille in 2005 but by that logic, why didn't the Hawks draft Datsyuk over Mark Bell in 1998?
CSS had Skille ranked as 11th best NA Skater, Kopitar was ranked as best european Skater

TSN had Kopi going #5 overall and Skille going #9 overall

ISS had Kopitar as #6 overall and Skille #13 overall

going by that logic, it was bad from the moment Tallon called Skilles name because he has a men crush on him. I remember many saying we should have taken Kopitar on other boards. Not sure about HF and it's 5 Hawks Fans back to that time. Should take some time to search the thread back then
