Daniel Posted June 16, 2015 Share Posted June 16, 2015 You can only blame Conte so much. It isn't like he went off the draft board and selected people who had no business being drafted in the first round. Teddy, Jo, Matteau, and Quenville were all supposed to go within that range. I blame him in recent years to the extent that he appears to be obssessed with looking for Dainus Zubrus with his forward selections rather than focusing more on skill and players that can score. Maybe it was the experience with Tedenby that spooked him. This draft could confirm my suspicions if the Devils end up taking Lawson Crouse, or perhaps passing on Mitch Marner for whoever if he's available (assuming Hanifin is not there either).
