Blah blah blah, hindsight is 20/20 RD. 14 players and SIX blueliners were taken before Karlsson. Clearly he probably should have been the no.2 pick overall. Doughty can't touch him imo, Doughty is good but not at that level. He's enjoying the extra space on the large rink but Karlsson brings it regardless of the rink size. Imagine how good he'd be if his achilles wasn't seared in half.
Atlanta took Bogosian 3rd
TO took Luke Schenn 5th!!!!
Columbus took Filatov 6th!
Nashville - Wilson 7th
Phoenix - Boedker 8th
Ilanders took Josh frickin' Bailey 9th!!!
Blackhawk geniuses took Kyle Beach 11th (hordes of Canucks fans everywhere were calling for Gillis to take Beach, maybe even you Dude....how could the Canucks have passed up Beach??????)
Buffalo lands a real gem at 12th w/ Myers <---imagine that! instead of Karlsson
LA steps up at 13th to secure their future w/ Colton Teubert! (the Kings could have had Doughty-Karlsson RIGHT THERE OMG!!!!
Carolina secures future HOFer Zack Boychuk at 14!
I hardly think its fair to rip Gillis on this one. I don't recall one single person wondering why we didn't draft Karlsson that day or even years after that. Easy to sit back now and point fingers. He wasn't alone. And if he was Karlsson would have gone 2nd or 3rd guaranteed.

Hmmm, doubt all you'd like but the London Knights can boast a similar representation.
Tavares, Perry, Nash for Canada and Kane for the States.
And upon further examination Ryan Gardner is playing for the Swiss.

Pathetic. I have no doubt the refs will do their best to be impartal and professional, but still.
It's a joke.
And Devorski is one of the linesmen.... Maybe we had better bench Daniel and Edler...?

Yup. Not a single goal in their last two games. They sure could have used a goal scorer.
