Poor draft management given that the success rates on picks aren't that dramatically different between rounds 2 and 3, but fall off pretty quickly thereafter. Made even worse when you go off your consensus draft board to take him. Not a huge Lodge fan, but Bjorkstrand was a no brainer at their pick.... even based on their board.
It's pretty funny how much that pick seemed to taint the whole draft, even though odds are whoever got picked in the 3rd round won't end up being an impact player anyway. I guess the seemingly willful disregard for potential, upside, and awareness of how the league is developing rubs people the wrong way.
