Panthers GM: ‘It’s A Better Draft Than We Thought’

NHL NEWS: Panthers

Dale Tallon [1]

The Florida Panthers will have some tough decisions to make come Draft Day. Specifically, GM Dale Tallon. He has the No. 1 pick overall and he certainly didn’t think about the extent of talent in this year’s draft.

Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports [2] Tallon’s thoughts on this year’s draft class and he’s a bit surprised at how good it appears to be.

“A lot of them are NHL-ready,” Tallon said. “It’s a better draft than we thought based on what we saw in the spring. There’s a lot of good players in the first round and we should get two good players [at No. 1] and at 32. It’s exciting; we’ll do well.”
