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

NHL NEWS: Panthers

Dale Tallon

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 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.”
