Couturier has got everything EXCEPT the most important aspect of a jockey player........COMPETE LEVEL.

His skating is underrated. It is all about compete level with him. If he competes he is a steal.

Psyched we picked Mika. A versatile skilled forward with a motor. Looked genuinely excited and mentioned that he's great friends with Sorensen already :-)

This is the first goal ZBad scored in the SEL. This might be a glimpse at what he can provide for us.

**** yeah Zibby.

Love the team we are building right now, a bunch of skillful Swedish players with large amount of swagger and confidence.

Lehner, Karlsson, Rundblad, Zibby, Silverberg, Petersson.

Z is bad ass when it comes to compete level and skating ability. I don't know about the offensive upside.

If he is more like the player that dominated U18 last month, he is an awesome pick. A Marian Hossa with guts and toughness to his game.

I just love players that compete. I think it was him or Strome for Ottawa as soon as the cost to trading up for Landeskog was out of the question.

I love this pick. Our deph chart for the future looks nice with Spezza-Zib-Regin-Smith at centre.

Mika Zibanajad was the guy the Senators wanted. He was ahead of Strome et all on their lists. #Sens.

Well obviously you're not going to go out in public and put down the guy you just drafted. That being said I do believe he was high on our list, there were still a lot of good players he was taken before.

So for the olympics, they may as well just send our entire team.

Personally, we should have taken Couturier but only the future will tell if this was the right pick or not.
