This is a good write-up. Appreciate it. Makes me feel better about our future then just seeing a list of the invitees (which isn't that impressive in itself). I just wish we had a better hit percentage for our 1st rounders over the last few years.
The list is actually pretty impressive given they have something like 7-8 first round picks in camp.
Other names like Fasching, Bailey, Baptiste, McCabe, Compher, etc, are very intriguing and impressive.
How can we have a "better hit percentage on our 1st rounders over the last few years," if we don't even know the hit percentage of them yet, so far? There is PLENTY of time for Grigorenko and Armia to develop into top-line studs. Girgensons, Pysyk, Ristolainen and Zadorov have already showed they have enough promise to hold out hope...and Reinhart is Reinhart. (Don't forget these are growing/developing KIDS!)
I don't understand how you could think like that or make that comment...it is super-duper far too early for that, in my opinion.
EDIT: Honestly, from 2008-2015...I think our "hit percentage on 1st rounders" will be damn impressive within time.
