I know nothing about the player but the idea certainly seems realistic to me. Ideally though, I'd like to see a high end '97 grabbed here, even if it's someone we have to wait a year to see ( after an NHL team drafts them). The core of the next strong team in Belleville will be built around 97's and 98's IMO. This high pick is a chance to add another top talent to that core.
