No Vendetta. He looks a solid prospect - too early to say 'a damn good player' certainly at the NHL level....

..but people talk about him as a lock for top 8 due to certain posters campaigning (IMO).

TBH I generally prefer forwards high in the draft since I think you have more chance of hitting than with defencemen, but if we HAD to go 'D' I don't really see what sets RR apart from others mentioned. Actually, I like Nurse and Zadarov's potential more than Risto's. And Santini is starting to interest me certainly what I've read over the past week or so.

Basically I'd be happy enough with a player like him at 16 but would find him an uninspiring pick at 8.
