UPDATE – From a source within the Senators, this pick came highly recommended from a trusted Swedish source, who, as he has said (correctly) in the past, swore this player would not just surprise, but downright dominate in the NHL. And I quote “This former scout insists this kid is the best Swedish player in the draft, including Landskog, in every aspect, from leadership to physicality to skill. I know this pick was a shock to many, but the Sens truly took the player they wanted, and that’s why they didn’t risk trading down. Only time will tell, but the talk from here is that this kid is a sure bet”
Well, I remain shocked, and purposely did not profile Zeb in thinking he would not be selected in the top 10, so much for that. There is a lot to like about this kid, not the least of which his ten tonne heart, here’s hoping.
I swear, like a religion, being a Sens fan is a constant test of faith.
I trust Murray, I trust Murray, I trust Murray…
Well, didn’t see that coming, honestly I’m shocked, and expected, if Z-Bad was going to be selected first, Murray would have traded down…guess not.
What’s next? And with our 21st pick we select, of the Zanzabar Zefyrs, Weinjar Trumcanogus…lol.
