    Fire Holland. This is unacceptable.

    Love the pick. We need size down the middle.

    Been saying it for a month. Rasmussen is a scouts dream and that I doubted he'd still be on the board but it would be a surprise if they passed on him. We shall see. Could end up being best player in this draft.

    He's not going to be a scoring line center. If he plays on a scoring line at all, it'll be on the wing. We essentially drafted another winger.

    Hope these scouts know something that we don't, Because this was a terrible pick. Vilardi, Necas, Tippet, Liljegren any of them would've been better then Rasmussen.

    I legitimately think this pick will be laughed at forever. Worst case scenario. I hate this team so much.

    Why? Because they have a non-positive opinion? Obviously no one really knows what he'll develop to but people can believe whatever they want.

    I thought Rassmussen was supposed to be more like a tenth or 11th pick. The Wings took him at ninth when Vilardi, who was supposed to be a 4th or 5th pick, not to mention a few others raked better were still available.

    Is this a new way of tanking? Or maybe he's a guy who interviews well. Or something.

    Holland can't even make an obvious pick. Just unbelievable. We are a ****ing laughing stock.

    In his interview he says he picked him cause "he has character".

    God I can't wait until he's gone.
