Did you think that players picked in the 2nd round would come into the league and dominate in their first 3-5 years? They are second rounder's for a reason.
Stu has drafted some pretty respectable players in the 2nd round that can still pan out and that are currently performing pretty well
Really? Like who? Marincin is the only one who is really tracking well that he's picked. I guess Musil too, who was essentially a late 1st.
The forwards Stu has picked in round 2 have all been lower tier. Pitlick's stock has dropped since draft day, and Hamilton and Martindale are both duds. Moroz wasn't a popular pick, and hasn't shown much improvement since last season.
I'd say Stu's picks have been average. He's done a good job taking the obvious guys 1st overall and has made some good later picks (Klefbom, Eberle, Rajala, Gernat). Then for every good pick, he's had a 2nd that isn't looking good.
