I agree, you don't pick a forward just for the sake of picking a forward. But I truly believe the kid has some serious talent. On the flip side, do you think Pouliot was a reach at 8?
The one player then and now I would've taken ahead of him was Jacob Trouba. But I don't want to turn this into another Pouliot draft thread, there's been enough of those already.
I'm also a huge Trouba fan. And I agree, I don't want to turn this into another draft thread, and I sincerely hope Pouliot is going to be a superstar for us.
