The whole Finnish team was disgustingly bad. Nothing new. I said the same thing about Mikael Granlund 3 years ago in Ottawa and look what happened to him. Maatta had 32 points in OHL (23 in POffs) while he was 16. I would say someone is underestimating this player.
And yet 8 out of 10 picks were defensmen? Yeah, go figure.
They were top ten picks, jerk. When you're drafting at 28, check that again cuz I'm not sure if you realize that's where we're drafting, you take the forward over the defenseman if both are a bit shaky. The 8 D-men drafted top 10 are studs. Just stop.
