Also If you look at the players on the board at the time we were drafting last year, the next 3 dmen were maatta, matheson, and schmaltz. Since the draft, it's looked like Laughton is the best prospect of the group. Holmgren made the right call on Laughton.
I agree. No matter what the GM does it is wrong. If they did the draft over now you still could pick those three at 20 but Laughton would be long gone.
