I gotta go with a solid B-
You can pick and dissect some of the "would of's and should of's" but the fact that Shero wanted to trade up (what you can assume was for Barzal) shows me that he has the best interest of turning this team around.
The Zacha pick warmed up to me as the night went on, Blackwood people can rag about since he's a goalie but I truly believe that he was not only the best player available but will instantly be our best prospect at that position. Clermont shouldn't be retained, Clemmer it was revealed won't come back, Blackwood and Wedgewood in the AHL together is instantly one of the better tandems in the AHL.
We did draft another forward with our 3rd round pick in Blake Speers who is supposed to be unbelievable, NHL Network radio was talking about how shocked they were that he fell that far to us. I also love the speed possessed by Brettt Seney (6th round pick)
Add in the Palmieri trade, which addressed a serious main roster need and I think we had one of the better, at least one of the more underrated drafts this year.
