You know who else knew? A leafs fan! I had no idea who Pettersson was at the draft and had no preference over him or glass, but I’m sure glad now they went with Pettersson!
“And while any one of these players could go on to have the better career, there is one player who is undoubtedly, without question the best player in this draft. A superstar. A near generational talent. Ladies and gentlemen…I present to you…Elias Pettersson.
So with all the talk of this draft being a two horse race between Patrick and Hischier…in my humble opinion, it’s a one horse race. And that horse’s name…is Elias Pettersson.”
