I think Musil can become a 6/7 guy. Certainly not the best value from where he was drafted, but not a complete waste of a pick either.
Lots of first round defensemen top out as a 6 guy. In hindsight, with our current team needs, Jenner would have been the best pick at the time. I was on the Victor Rask bandwagon....
I think it's still a waste. You are going to waste a pick and then a bunch of years developing a guy that you can sign on September 1st for league minimum.
Just a waste IMO. Those first two rounds I rather go after guys that project to be top 6 forwards or top 4 d-men, and if they turn out to be bottom 6 forwards or bottom pairing d-men or busts so be it.
This club has had very little trouble adding those bottom 6 players or #4-6 d-men via free agency so I'm not too concerned about adding those type of players through the draft. On the flip side we have a lot of problems signing top 6 and top 3 d-men, so lets try draft and develop those ones.
