i would've just liked to see them take the most talented player on the board instead of focusing on a defensive player at the expense of the best talent. again i don't know his game, just going by what i heard from the analysis people so i may very well be wrong.
He is, but he's very athletic, and Walsh said his shot is fine. To me, that seems like talent.

I don't think it was a great pick but people seem up in arms about it, which strikes me as silly. I think we overreached (we could have got him 5-7 picks later) but what assets could we got for dropping back like that i don't know.
