Glad we're keeping our expectations realistic lol.

Morin and Laughton look great and I'll concede that they are showing more promise than I expected at the time of their selections, but before we start slobbing over their Hall of Fame careers, I think it would be prudent to see them play at a professional level and be moderately successful before burdening them with the expectations of being the next Mike Richards or Chris Pronger or Hatcher or ____.

The quality of the selections isn't measured by stats in Juniors. I'm definitely excited, but way, way too early to define the picks as successful or not.
