This Brunnstrom guy sounds like the real deal... don't know anything about the other two though.
Don't even bring that up. That move absolutely kills me. They could have drafted a big, tough, stay at home defenseman with the potential to put up points and be an all around force, but instead draft yet another completely offensive minded defenseman. They already have Kindl for that role, so what exactly was the point of drafting Smith?
Ok, I'm done...
If Smith was the best player available, I think that's what you have to do. Drafting for need is usually a loser way to go unless that need player can help you immediately (rare in hockey.) Better to stockpile talent and trade for what you need.
Besides, Kindl appears to be having a rotten year so far. -17 so far, far and away the worst on the Griffins, and he's not really scoring either. Obviously you hope that's just the usual difficulties adjusting to the pro game, but it's not a good sign.
