These are the kind of 1st rounds picks that got us where we are now. This could rival Boston’s terrible draft where they had 3 in the 1st a few years ago and flubbed it. 

That Shakir pick almost brings back memories of Adrian Foster.

Shakir has much higher upside than Schneider or Guhle. Castron must have seen him as the guy they needed in this draft so they weren’t taking chances. Yzerman looked like a genius after reaching on Seider. Maybe it’ll be like that for Fitzy. 

Similar to when Winnipeg took Scheiflie way back when and everyone was slating that pick. Doesn't look that bad now. 

But this is quite the reach.

Holtz will be a stud and Mercer sounds like the kind of player with a high floor. 

It’s reasonable to call this organization a joke for taking a 3rd/4th round graded player top fvcking twenty. It’s unreasonable to use that pick as a reason why it’s a failure of a first round.

Mercer is probably a 3rd line player. You don’t take that at 18.

This is just ridiculous...   we could have traded down or taken a swing on Hendrix Lapierre.   Instead we have a character 3rd liner as his ceiling, and a skinny Russian defender who won’t be here for years, if he ever does - cause Russia.

Meh. Talk to me in three to five years.

I guess that's largely my problem - outside of our first pick, I was hoping they'd manage to do something to improve the team immediately tonight with 18 and 20.

Instead we picked up two Fringe level players that may crack the roster by 2025.

I guess there weren’t any enticing trade opportunities for Fitz.

I was counting on it, too. I can't believe there wasn't a good deal to be had for a fringe contract...

I don't believe it, I refuse to...
