Keller, Jost, or Brown. The Devils needed to walk out of the first round with one of those guys. And we didnt get it done. 

this first round was soooo jets like... what a great thing that we won a few extra games this year, yippee

--> Essentially his take was "Not a bad pick, unless Jost, Brown, Keller, Dubois, or Nylander are available." Well, Devils scouting department clearly didn't have faith in Brown, so they picked up a free 3rd rounder and snagged this kid.

His speed is crazy...but yea. Literally everybody we wanted just picked off one by one.

I think this kid will probably be like...Darren Helm?

A first round pick, especially top 15, your hope is that you're getting a solid scoring forward. I dont think this guy has the hands or vision.

The pick is extremely safe. Considering where we were picking and how the board panned out, I can't hate the pick. Yes, I'd have been far more enthusiastic with Jost or Keller.

McLeod can positively fly. He will improve our attack in many respects. I'm much happier with him than if we took one of the d-men that were on the board. There's still plenty of time for Shero to do more.
