I'm on record as being fine with that, if it is the right player.

That said, I'm not sure that a guy like Ristolainen is that much further behind a guy like Gormley in terms of development. Ristolainen is probably the 2nd most NHL-ready defenseman in the draft after Jones.

I agree that Zadorov is probably a longer-term project. Some around here seem to believe that he has the highest ceiling after Jones (and possibly Nurse), but I was a bit put off by his CSS ranking.
