Terrible pick. Holland likes to do this. Makes a good trade with the Yotes. Then instead of taking a better player goes out and takes a reach. Even if Cholowski makes it some day-5-6 years from now, others that were on the board will already be in the NHL producing. Oh well. Terrible pick.
Even with Chychrun - it'll be 3 to 5 years before we know what we got.
But yeah - this Cholowski was probably deemed a 2nd rounder by many GMs.
Get to watch Cholowski at Saint Cloud state!
The best thing for this kid is to develop at his own pace, and NCAA gives these young men ample time to do so (even though DD was never drafted - playing college hockey allowed him the time to mature).
