I don't think we did too bad.
In retrospect, we were all just really pissed that we missed out on Nurse and Ristolainen.
However, the same reasons we wanted them at 11 are the same reasons they got scooped up at 7 and 8.
Chris, no disrespect intended but you don't even watch these guys play live. At best you watch a few videos of these guys and pass yourself off as an "expert" while you are as clueless as any of the rest of us. CG knows a hell of a lot more about them than you ever will and I'm personally tired of your condescending demeanor. I too can read up on these prospects and I've yet to see anything on any dman available when we picked that suggests that there was a top pairing guy available.
NOBODY who scouted these guys projects any of them except for Jones to be a legit top pairing guy.
Everyone agrees that we need help for our defense in the future (ie - dmen prospects) but what do we really need??? We have Coburn, still young, a solid defensive dman, we have Schenn, a physical defensive dman, we have Grossman, a solid bottom 4 defensive, shot blocking dman. What are we missing??? A legit good PMD with offensive upside. Did we get that in Morin?? **** no!!!! We got another big physical defensive minded dman. We still have a ****ing hole in generating offensve from the blueline and moving the puck out of the zone. The only long term future we have on the blueline in that role is freaking Gustafsson and while I really like him, we can only hope that he tops out at becoming a legit 2nd pairing guy in that mold and he's not even close to being that right now.
This selection has failure written all over it. Not because Morin will be a bust but because it DIDN'T address any freaking needs at all. Hell, we would have been better served to draft another forward than a type of dman that we DIDN'T need more of.
