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
The guy I considered the best player on the board after Ristolainen went off.
This is true. Any opportunity he gets to work with Chris Pronger will be just awesome for him.
I agree, Pronger now has abig nasty D-man to try and mold. I trust our Quebec scouts.
Also, Wennberg just went 2 picks later, and Bob MacKenzie said he projects as a 3rd line C. So we are now into depth guys it appears who possibly have upside. I think Morin still has that.
