    AZ would’ve picked him @ 5

    Are you serious??? for once he made the right move and picked up the center we need. Had he traded down, we would have lost him

    WTF are you drinking tonight? This isn't even remotely close to a similar situation. Those guys were big, untalented slugs.

    Kotkaniemi is a very talented kid that was the 3rd leading scorer on his professional men's hockey league team last year... and he's still only 17.

    Was he ranked higher than Zadina or Tkachuk? 27 also had talent fyi. Was there a player picked yet who didn't have talent?

    Tinordi and McCarron had very little talent... hence my comment.

    And I didn't say "he has talent." I said he's very talented.
