The person who also brought up Matt Martin earlier, he at least had a 25-goal season, and then 35 after being drafted. And he's not a particularly good player either. The Islanders also had like a 100 draft picks in that draft as they do often. Martin was their 11th of 13 draft picks in that draft, despite being the 5th round. We did it in our 3rd pick of the draft, and he was also the only forward we took. It's not like we don't have organizational depth there either, as Holmgren is constantly being linked to young scoring forwards as well. And they didn't have much faith in Tye McGinn to give him ice time at the end of the season with nothing to play for.

If Goulbourne can turn into an Andrew Shaw or Kyle Clifford, that's ok, but in the 3rd round your standards should be higher given the resume.
