It's kinda odd though when everyone (including BoltsProspects) ranks our 19th pick over 10th pick from the moment they were drafted.
If you take away the Russian stigma and base it on talent alone Vasilevski would have likely gone top 8 atleast so I don't find it too odd considering how gung ho he is about playing for the Lightning.

Is this a serious question?
He's out after his 2nd shoulder surgery in the past year, so he's not playing for us this year or next. He's our 1st round pick from last year, hopefully will be a better Carle in 2-3 years.

I'd like to know this as well.

Obviously not. I honestly forgot we even drafted this kid until about a week ago. Hopefully he pans out.
