The Jets jumped up to get the best Dman available (although some hate their choice), they didn't trade back to take what's left. That is one thing I appreciate about the Jets drafting strategy. It's the exact opposite of Red Wing drafting. The Jets identify the player they want and they get him. Where the Wings drop back and throw darts because as some around here like to say "anything can happen".
The Jets' first pick should be alright.
Yeah, he's ok. Seems like and average rookie this year.
What an insane rookie class:
Even the next level of rookies would have consideration most years:
I think Laine and Marner are the best of them. Matthews has an advantage because Babs likes his heavy players.
It's interesting listening to the Toronto media and their reasoning for Matthews winning. Seems like a lot of grasping at straws.
