Well, it's not like players taken after him are tearing the league apart. There are hardly any guys there who are established NHLers at this point.

The only guys that played any NHL games are Tyson Barrie (COL), Dmitry Orlov (WAS), T.Tatar (Detroit), Alexander Urbom (WAS), David Savard (CBJ). Lander has played more games than any of these players.

If you can take a player in the 2nd round who becomes as reliable a 3rd liner as B.Gordon--that's a success. If the player becomes a 1st/2nd liner or 1st/2nd pairing defenseman, that's a home run pick.
Franchise players are so rare that if you get one in any round, you are lucky.
