Considering the Islanders have him at 3 on their draft board behind Yakupov and Murray, we're extremely glad four forwards went in the first five picks to allow Dumba to fall to us.
Lot's of great guys still available. Anaheim considered Dumba, but Galchenyuk's talent simply cannot be denied. Having a guy with first line star potential playing the second line behind Getzlaf? Perfect. We think he'll mesh perfectly with Emerson Etem who plays a somewhat similar game to Alex's former teammate Nail Yakupov.
Dallas has 28 minutes to make their selection. Come on guys. I notified everyone about the draft start. No one sent me safety lists. And I made it clear we were starting right away. I don't want to see anyone get upset if they don't get who they want.
