Tambellini cut his teeth in Edmonton youth leagues, this is yet another Edmonton based pick, yet I'm supposed to think he was the bpa.
Not gonna happen.
Let's be realistic here. People here are not "weighing all the factors" when deciding 10 minutes after the selection was made if it was the right one. They're grasping to three sentences in a news article from three months ago and the 2-3 prospects they saw play twice at the WJC and grew unreasonably attached to and deciding on a knee-jerk reaction based on that.
