    Knew they'd go goalie early...which I'm not really in favor of as a philosophy... but if they were going to anyway I Like the player.

    So happy we got a decent G prospect. I just want another Murray on our team, not asking for much from Botts :sarcasm:

    Seems like a nice pick. Performed really well and has a long frame.

    Late second is not early for any type of pick, come on man. We can't rely on 6th rounders for G prospects forever :laugh: I posted some stats a while back. Your chance of nailing a starter beyond round 4 are like 5%. We could have used the 3rd but I am fairly certain the top 4 prospects are gone by then. Good pick for sure no matter how he turns out

    Wrote up a small bit about him. The TL;DR is he's got high upside but there are serious issues there.

    Rayzor will be even more entertaining in his attempts to pronounce.

    My philosophy is to take a big Nordic goalie in the last three rounds every year and move on with your life. The draft position odds don't apply on goalies...there is almost no rhyme or reason to it.
