Anaheim:
Nicholas Deschamps 35th
Eric O'Dell 39th
Justin Schultz 43rd

If any of those teams knew that those players were going to be that good, they would have taken him earlier. The reason each of those guys dropped was that they had significant flaws that they had to overcome or were "risky" picks. I forget where I heard it but I remember hearing macT say that he wanted his scouts to be able to make their picks this year and go with their gut. I hope we see higher risk high reward players instead of the safe but less rewarding players like Hamilton, Pitlick, Moroz etc. I get we need size but its hard to draft role players.
You consider Moroz a safe pick? He's the definition of a risk/reward pick.
