Seeing these many picks (thanks to all that posted) makes me root for this kid even more to make it. Sometimes he makes questionable decisions, but I can honestly say that I havent always been a saint and to hold that against a guy that is still a kid is wrong.
Also as malPHONEY kinda said before, I think the Isles knew this kid was a little better than what he was being portrayed as.....and that this wasn't a wasted(super risky to begin with) pick. I really think the Isles took less of a chance than what people think. I am glad he has a chance, now its up to him to do it. Seeing that he did this, again, makes me root for the kid even more. We shall all see.....I think he'll make it as a regular and a good NHL player at this point. (but that is with a limited playing sample size)
