Funny how the worst player of the bunch turned out to be none other than 1st round bust Jiri Tlusty.
Only on HF is Tlusty, who is 24, has played in 288 NHL games and just put up a 17G, 19A season (not spectacular, but not terrible), and is a defensively responsible forward who is at a minimum is a top 9 forward....is considered worse than 3 guys who haven't even sniffed the NHL yet (Holzer, Ruegsegger, Komarov), a goalie who hasn't even played 82 games and can't hold a starting job, and a bottom pairing defenseman.
Heck, that "worst" player even out-performed Kulemin this past season.
Way too early to tell for Carolina, but 2010 probably is the only draft that has the potential.
Skinner (1st) and Justin Faulk (2nd) were both solid NHL players at 19.
Mark Alt(2nd) had the potential to be a 4-5-6 defenseman.
Danny Biega (3rd) has really come into his own at Harvard and has become quite the offensive defenseman.
Austin Levi (4th) was thought to be just the token Whaler pick, but looks like he also has a chance to be a 4-5-6 defenseman.
Justin Shugg (4th) seems to be a long shot.
Tyler Stahl (6th) probably won't pan out
Frederik Andersen (7th) had a phenomenal season in the SEL this past season and was probably the top goaltender. Unfortunately, it looks like the Canes might not be the beneficiary as unless they sign him today, he's a free agent.
The Canes also acquired Sanguinetti and Riley Nash by trading picks during this draft.
