Anderssons is a big defenseman that plays a solid two-way game. His hockey sense is good and offensively he stands out with pretty good top speed, puckhandling and a quite powerful slapshot. Defensively, he is usually in right position, but sometimes tends to not play it simple enough when in control of the puck.
Or maybe he was and now he doesn't have so much of a say.
Maybe we just didn't have a system to develop the players once we picked them. You look at all picks differently when you have confidence you have the right staff to actually help the players develop rather than having to rely solely on the player doing their part.
If you are developing your own system to help these players and your confident in it, you can go out and make picks we wouldn't have made in the past, instead going the alternate route of playing it 'safe'.
Delorme may have had to adapt to a different way of thinking
some of his notable draft comments that reflected his old way of thinking include saying how much of a crapshoot drafting is and that it's usually good enough to watch a player in practice to see how good he is.
I doubt Delorme has as much say over the final list as before as scouting seems to be a lot more structured than it was in the past judging from Gillis's comments. Delorme may be more of a figurehead now.
