To think we picked him ahead of Eberle and Carlson is mind boggling considering the fact that most fans on here will have you believe that our drafts have been so wonderful since 2007 when Gorton got involved!
What a joke.

He was also drafted after such superstars as:
Nikita Filatov
Kyle Beach
Josh Bailey
Colton Teubert
Zack Boychuk
Joe Colborne
Chet Pickard

After him we had:
Anton Gustafsson
Tyler Cuma
Mattias Tedenby
Greg Nemisz
Viktor Tikhonov
Dalton Leveille
Thomas McCollum

But hey, I think you should pick and choose using hindsight to say that if he isn't the best player in the draft, that it was an utter failure. How's that work for you in real life?
