Regarding Ionin - Rychel had himself convinced that he was getting Tolchinsky and was completely unprepared when he was taken by the Soo the pick before us. The way it worked in the past we should have had him as he was calling his shot to come here, but Dubas caled his bluff and it paid off for the Soo. With the import draft you have cooked deals, so when Tolchinsky went off the board, it's not like WR could just take the next most talented guy - as they all had arraigned deals behind us as well, so he really had no choice but to go completely off the board on a kid who didn't have any cooked deal. Tolchinsky reporting to the Soo actually burned the Spits - because when he agreed to come here, Spits stop looking and making Plan B fall back options.
