I think he was royally miffed that he lost out on moving up, losing out on Schenn, no way to make a splash...He was mad as heck and was going to make some controversy come heck or high water. You could tell every time the camera went to him, he looked like a kid in a candy store who lost his wallet, and can only stare at all the goodies and think, if only.....

Interesting. Of course to make a trade and lie about who you were picking would get you ostracized ASAP; but where no deal is made, there is no harm in lying here as there was no transaction.
For some reason I am not buying it. It was pretty well documented that the Sens were high on Kadri.

Either way I am very happy with the Cowen pick!

That's because Cowen was supposed to be gone by then.

You're fighting an uphill battle if you're trying to argue that putting up 26 points and being the powerplay quarterback for one of the two or three best teams in the NCAA as a freshman is not indicative of offensive potential. The lack of goals does raise a question, but does not suggest he is not talented. If there's one thing this board should have learned from watching Wiercioch's season it's that this kind of offensive impact is rare for freshmen blueliners, particularly true freshmen. The quality of that Miami program also can not be underestimated. Wideman was a key offensive cog for a team that almost (and probably should have) won the national championship, it's not Nebraska-Omaha or Colgate.

On the flip side, undersized offensive defencemen go in the middle rounds every year. They're great gambles and smart picks at that stage in the draft though, even if every year we can look back at drafts gone by and see them littered with undersized busts.
