Im not "counting him out" but im not happy that they could have traded back to 20th and still got him. Its just a waste to draft him at 11. Thats what most people who are mad are mad about. Some just dont want the guy and thats fair too, but most who are mad are so because he was taken at 11. Its not that hard to understand.
The picks in the 11-25 range are all fairly interchangeable this year.
Maybe, but the Laughton pick was still a great one for us. He's been tearing up the OHL, and his emergence gives us flexibility to make trades to fill our needs. All I'm saying is give Morin a chance. The Flyers scouts are obviously very good at their jobs. They must see something in Morin if they chose to draft him.
Why does everyone think we could have traded down? Mackenzie said he could have easily gone top 10. Surely you guys are smart enough to know that just because central scouting puts a guy at 18 doesn't mean that be will be there at 18 necessarily. The jets just picked a guy rated 28th
