pez got on the three star multiple time this season and even during playoff. that's mean he's top 3 out of 40 player at least even if people think he sucks. he's a hard to play against player and I can see some appeal to that. yeah I don't like it but a lot of people like that kind of hockey.
I was so mad when I saw they picked pezzetta over sokolov. If the small chance pezzetta ever made the NHL there is always dozens of players exactly like him in free agency. Sokolov has a chance if being a goal scorer in the top 6
haven't seen much of Michael Pezzetta so I don't know much about him, I mind this pick less then Crisp since it's a 6th rounder vs 71st overall pick which imo is still in the range where you need to hit more then you miss. I expect nothing out of 6th round picks but understand the frustration. I so badly wanted the Habs to draft Anders Lee in the 7th round after watching him play in the USHS at 15 for STA (Saint Thomas Academy) what a steal that would have been.
Teams like the Hawks, Pens, Caps, Sharks, Kings usually add depth at the deadline while aiming for players they draft to be impact players on their roster.
We on the other hand, draft players to turn them into bottom 6 players and that when we realize there isn't much hope, trade more picks to acquire bottom 6 players like Mitchell, Flynn, Ott, King etc etc....
