I trust Stu, hopefully he has a offensive break out like Lucic did in his post draft year. Being on the Oil Kings gives him a developmental advantage, the Oilers can make sure he gets the minutes to maximize his development.
I think after losing out on Henrik Samuellson (spelling?) they wanted to ensure they got Moroz. Too early I agree, but I still like the player.
Yeah, we missed out on one oil king so we better reach a round to two rounds early to get another oil king, be damned who the hell else was on the board. Cam Abney pick except a full round earlier. Just friggin brutal.
I'll love to hear the oil brass tell me he was bpa.
Mark my words this will be a really good pick! I know the Moroz family and they are fantastic people. Also there is no way he would have made it to the 3rd round. Lots of scouts interested as he got goals with limited ice time on the 4th line this year!
I trust Stu but I would have rather got him with our 3rd. Why pick a guy projected to be a 3rd-4th round pick with an early first when you can pick up guys who were left out of the first? With Collberg and Finn Montreal and Toronto are laughing.
