I would... if we pick him at 11 it is a silly risk.

I always remember Boris Valabik and how much he rose for being a big, tough D man who was defensively aware and had 'potential' to be more offensive.

Look how that panned out.

Morin is a better skater than Valabik though, which improves his chance of success greatly, and is more disciplined.

If we get a later 1st in addition to the #11, I would be happy to take Morin, not at 11 though.
