Remember when we were all pretty bummed
about needing a top pairing defenseman so badly
and having no realistic chance to pick Bowen Byram?
(Who is a very good young defensemen, too, btw, and will
hopefully enjoy a long career free of any more concussions).

But this pick goes to show there are few things more important
than making your first round picks really count especially when you
draft in the top half of the first round. Count as in: find an impactful top of
lineup player, not a guy who can make an NHL team and sorta keep his head
above water. It takes guts and the willingness to go against the grain sometimes.
Think of those drafts where there were two consensus top players. A good proportion of the time, one or even both are not the best players in the draft.
But when you’re picking that high it’s gotta be so hard to take a chance on a player you’re you like better, knowing the number of people who are going to blast you for it.
