I hated this pick in every conceivable way. A strong draft and still a high enough pick to get an impact player wasted on a guy who had bottom pairing defender at best written all over him. A tall, weak, stay at home LEFT shooting defenseman was the last thing the Oilers needed. The comparisons to Marincin absolutely terrible. Marincin at the same age had ten time the skill/offense. Going after a guy who projects to be Marincin but with significantly less offensive is crazy imo. He was passed by many because he had a terrible skill set. Drives me nuts that the Oilers end up with picks like this. Everyone passed on him... He must be good...? Maybe everyone else did their homework.
