So few players become stars. The reality is, the odds are still against most of these players. Marc-Andre Bourdon was one of the most successful players from the third round in his draft class. Just think about that.
Can't help it if Bourdon's draft class was so bad that guys like Rinaldo were being drafted. The level of impact depth within the organization, especially on the high-end, can best be described as 'decrepit.' The highest possible value should be used on every pick. ASF is saying that Holmgren already described him as Zac Rinaldo 2.0. That's poor value. That's not even saying "he's a project pick with good skating who should get more ice time to develop."
