If MCI becomes a beast on the backline that will totally be a 'sexy' pick. Getting value where we pick, that's all that matters. If we get a talent, passing on another talent of a different kind won't hurt.

There are underwhelming selections around the MCI pick but none of those guys are close to being finished, still only 21 yrs old. I keep seeing all these guys playing in the Conf finals who never made a dent until their mid or late 20's. Corey Crawford drafted in 2003, Bryan Bickell in 2004, I wonder how a team stayed with those guys for so long before they made it.
