With Goulbourne, the upside is minuscule. He might make the NHL ahead of other guys in the 3rd rd, but at most as a 4th liner. Why go big in round 1 and 2 and shoot low in 3? Doesn't make sense to me.
The problem I have with it is simply that Goulbourne would have been there later. I don't have a problem taking "useless goons" if the expectation is that they can be a heart and soul fourth liner in the future. My issue is just that you could have picked him up later.
