Why is everyone expecting 1st round picks to develop into 1st line fowards or 1st pairing defenders?
Yeh, if Laughton and Leier are 'just' good 3rd liners that is pretty damn good, and if Hagg, Morin and Ghost are all good enough to play in the NHL, especially anywhere in the top 4 that is great as well.
