Ok, all sarcasm aside, I'm happy with the team's first round pick, Tyler Cuma. All reports seem to indicate he's a good defensive prospect, something this team is lacking. For me, the funniest and most satisfying part of the draft came when the Garth Snow-led New York Islanders took Gopher-recruit Aaron Ness. Gopher Nation is in panic mode right now about their incoming superstar and his one-and-done probability now. Get a good look at Ness now, gopher fans, because he won't be back for a sophomore season.
The only aspect that mildly disappointed me was that the Wild didn't pick a goaltender. Backstrom has a few years left in him, Harding's the future, but it'd be nice to start developing a future stud. Personally I was hoping for the Finnish kid, Harri Sateri, but oh well.
Now it's time to sign Rolston and Bouchard. If nothing can be worked out soon, DR had better have a back-up plan, maybe somebody with the initials M.H.
