Yeah, if you think about it, bit of an underdog to go #1 but he was probably hoping, assuming that at least he'd go number 2. Not sure what you're watching down there but up here on TSN they kept showing him as he slipped past 2, then 3...felt bad for the guy because you knew he probably felt a bit humiliated and just wanted it to be over.

Think about it...once he went past Colorado, if you were a young hockey player, would you honestly want to play in Florida or Tampa Bay? Nothing wrong with those cities, but Nashville is the most consistently competitive amongst his 2-4 options so I'm sure it's not at all an issue with being a Pred, but rather some lingering shock to go #4 when some whispered in his ear that he might go #1.

Also wanted Preds to get a FWD, but when you get a guy who would be a slam-dunk #1 overall in most any other year at #4... #richpeopleproblems
