Nice pick IMO. Safe but goes with what he's trying to build.

They don't have the luxury at the back end to go for boom/bust types.

Scouts don't. He was projected as a third round pick.

*Some scouts. And likely not the ones with major sway at a draft table, where it matters.

Easy to dismiss what you disagree with as nonsense. Especially when you are just speculating very loosely.

Guhle put up some impressive combine #'s so he's strong

Definitely a pick for need.

Not a bad pick at all IMO. He was easily best dman in PA towards end of year. Kylington is not a pro player. I do like Dunn tho

What?

I'm saying the people actually making the picks seem to disagree with your assessment. Frankly I can't figure out what your post means.

I am hoping Guhle turns out like the McCabe pick. Better players were available then too put still turned out to be a great pick.

There are no bad picks just prospects with warts.

Don't know much about him but I'm glad we drafted a defenseman. Waiting to hear Sabres analysis on this.

From Harrington:

Guhle registered seven top-10 finishes at the 2015 NHL Combine, tying Jack Eichel for the most among all prospects.

Beat me to it. Looks like he has good explosiveness, more of a defensive guy than an offensive d-man judging by his points?

Guhle seems like a more physical player however. What is in the water in Sherwood Park? Another drafted defenseman from that neighborhood.

It means because you disagree with what scouts say so that means their opinions are not so important as the ones that agree with you. You are also speculating what scouts have more value to their opinion without knowing the scouts. That is called speculation.
Saying my post is drunk looks like you have a comprehension problem...here is why.

You have to idea what scouts have said. In fact go check out the major scouting reports say, only one has him ranked that high out of 5.

No kidding...

Guhle registered seven top-10 finishes at the 2015 NHL Scouting Combine, tying Jack Eichel (No. 2 NA Skater) for the most among all prospects. That includes top marks in the long jump (122 inches) and the highest peak power output score on the Wingate bike test (19.9), which measures a player’s explosive leg power.

Quote:
A heads-up defenseman who can really take a beating and dish it out as well. Built like a tank; grueling play doesn't phase him. Calm, collected, and poised with the puck; great body and stick positioning without the puck. Reliable at both ends of the ice and can be trusted with a hefty amount of ice time. All-in-all, a defenseman who strives to be difficult to play against, consistently, with and without the puck. (Curtis Joe, EP 2015)

My man, I'm saying that GMs form their opionins (in part) based on scouting reports from their...scouts. And if GMs and scouts that have sway with GMs haven't picked him before our Great Screw-up of the 2015 Draft in Round 2 of our Lord, then I feel safe saying many scouts and GMs disagree with your original premise.

You sound upset. You shouldn't be.
