So they likely had Poirier as ~18-20 and Klimchuck as ~21-24
That's a pretty weird way of describing their rating system, since nobody really knows who the Flames thought were going to be available at their picks. Whenever a GM goes out of his way to say that, it usually means that he knows that some folks are going to question him. I get that, but I'm not sure it does anyone any favours. It just sounds like he's being a bit defensive, and it opens him up to criticism if the player doesn't live up to his lofty predictions.
