Totally fine with the moves they've made up to this point.

jury is still out, hoping for the best.  Agree that his OHL #'s are a little mis-leading because of his age.

I've always been a big proponent for Gelinas.  I think that he has a great chance to be that special player that everyone has to game plan against.  Sure players that make the sound play is what a team needs to be mostly composed of, but just like PK Subban and Ovechkin, you make sacrifices because of the unique things they can do for your team.  Plus, Gelinas is still young.  If he can even warrant a 2nd pairing ES minutes and keep his offense up, the whole D can make up for a lot of what the forwards lack.

Saying a lot here - a special player that everybody needs to plan against?  Using Eric, Subban and Ovechkin in any kind of comparison at this point in their careers is a real stretch. Subban and even more so Ovechkin bring sooooo much more to the table.  Ovechkin is arguably a top ten talent.  Ask people outside of NJ their thoughts on Subban and Gelinas and most of them would say "who".  If the kid is going to be here I hope he turns into a much better player, I feel though that what we've seen from this guy is what we're gonna get.

Still a kid but I don't see him being anything more than an average at best bottom six guy in the league if everything goes his way.  I don't see everything going his way.  It was cute drafting a Matteau though, I guess.

Not a fan at all, hopefully he becomes the 7th D or moved.  Although I don't see much value there, he could bring back another spare part I guess.
