Had we kept that number 27, we would likely never get a shot at drafting our current number 27.
Pretty much this. I'm still amazed by the Lemony snicket-esque events that had to transpire for us to get Galchenyuk. With how tight those standings were last year, i really doubt we're in that spot with a great top 4 guy like Mcdonagh added to the mix by only subtracting Gomez, which in itself might have been a plus as well.
As fun as it is to ***** and cry about McDonagh, I take Galchenyuk everyday of the week over Mcdonagh + whoever we would have taken at 5+ (rumor was Teravainen).
