That's insane, but what do we expect when our owner said Steve Mason's 7 games is not a small sample? This is too high risk of a pick at 11.
I think the NHL world liked Morin more for the fact that he's a fantastic skater for a 6'6 beast, he has some of the best footwork I've seen on a man that size, and he has all the IQ necessary to put it all together.
Morin is a very intelligent player, perhaps one of the brightest in the class per scouting.
