But I am not going to sit here and say they got it
and should have picked him because one time I saw a clip about him. That is ridiculous. You (and most others on here) don't know Goulbourne. You (and most others on here) probably don't know many of the other guys drafted in the third round outside of random tweets and youtube clips. You saw a couple lists and Goulbourne wasn't on them. So they are wrong.
Tell that to Keith Jones! When he was told he was drafted he thought there was a war going on.
I don't think it had anything to do with the "lists" when it came to Goulbourne. It's that every year it seems that Holmgren and Co. decide to go with an overager or fighter who resembles what the NHL used to be like. That's why most are upset and are referring to. If they went on sheer skill for this pick, they would have selected Gabriel or maybe even Jordan Subban or a few others that were still there. Nobody likes them picking Klotz type of players because it's a waste of a pick
