No, the tweet said #16. Given the scouts involved, the discussion was probably Forsberg vs. Faksa (think it was their CZE and SWE scouts).
If who they have tweet is anything like most organizations, it's no one important tweeting and definitely not at the table with McPhee, or have information on the rankings the Caps have for different prospects.
It's much more likely that whoever just assumed it was going to be the Finn because of the rankings given by TSN and just copy pasted the name, and made a mistake.
Vasilevski has all the tools to becoming an elite goalie his movement is fast, and the only reason he probably isn't a top 10 pick is because of that Canadian surge in the third, which was just spectacular playing/TERRIBLE just terrible reffing.
This is that punk who acted like he got knocked out by Mike Green.
"McPhee also mentioned that he was happy with the job that Brooks Laich did as Washington’s second-line center in the playoffs, but that he felt the team needed an injection of skill into its top six forwards."
