I love you guys lol. Seriously can we stop with the "you haven't even seen him play" line. We have a Storm fan here. He's seen the kid play, he offered a first hand opinion and you basically ignored him because it doesn't fit your narrative. I quote:

But Detroit always drafts well, maybe they saw something in him that I/the rest of the media didn't.

Enjoy your Andrew Shaw fantasies, but this was a terrible pick.

The kid plays in the OHL and doesn't even have a highlight video. Note, I said "the OHL" as in Ontario; it's not like he's from East Nowherestan. Guelph is pretty scoutable last I checked folks.

Wasted pick. And DO NOT say it was free. There is no such THING as a free draft pick. Holland made a good move to trade down and then by virtually all accounts wasted it. Between this and the last contract I'm now convinced that Bert has pictures of someone in the front office dressed like a vegas showgirl to use as blackmail material; he'll be assistant GM next.
