Make no mistake, I know he did well to warrant his draft projection, and maintain his value this season. I don't turn a blind eye, I see what he fetched.

Only fans seem to expect much much more. Its nothing more than overreacting to something that they were not expecting, and then trying to defend it.

I will go with the GM's opinion that passed on him despite concensus BPA, George that wanted to move him (and seemed like he wasnt even sure he wanted him), all the GM's that presumed passed on trade offers. In the end, there was Poile a clear fan of the kid. And what he gave up is probably close to FF's value. Him dropping in the draft, and him fetching what he did; is not a random coincidence.

George got market value for him, or very close.
