Some good players have been passed over in the draft, and I'm sure many teams wish they had found them and drafted them when they were eligable. Jonas Gustavson showed nothing while he was draft eligable and now is the projected saviour of the Leafs. Maybe Burke sees something nobody else does.
I think I'm going to skip following the draft here next June. Little insight, just juvenile bellyaching.
Yes, because everyone must agree with taking players in the lowest level of hockey POSSIBLE, who evidently (according to, you know, scouting reports?) doesn't use his 6'6 size to any effect.
Point being, there are players available who produce in decent leagues. Decent numbers, at that. Players who are known for a reason...call a 6'6 lumbering player "high reward" all you want, doesn't make it so. People simply like to call a player with height "high reward", as if there's loads of super tall players in the NHL who came about the same way.
