At such a young age he wasn't just showing proficiency out there, but he was running plays from the blueline and directing his forwards on where to position themselves. I'll admit I hated the pick at first. Knowing that Forsberg and Trouba were still available. And I'd still take Trouba over Lindholm, but Hampus was a great selection at 6 IMO.
Just let it go. Noone knew who Schultz or Gardiner were until there were off the Ducks.
The right answer has to be Trouba right now. He is the only guy taken after Hampus that I would even consider trade him for.
