I dont know. Not sure if I'm a fan of this pick, in this spot. Not a bad pick, but seems like its a little bit of a stretch? Literally never heard of him before until now.

Edit- Missed the fact that we moved up to draft him, so I guess really wanted this guy.

Worth the trade of the two other picks ?
One other pick. They traded their #51 and #97 for a #45 , so basically it was the #97 pick traded to move up 6 spots. Worth it? We'll find out in a few years. But the odds of getting an NHL player at #97 are pretty slim, so...

That's up to our scouts. From the mathematics of the trade value chart, I'd say no. Second and third round picks are generally similar in value so a 2 for 1 is not a good value. The 5-7 rd picks are generally worthless. That said, the Kings made a move last summer to move up and draft Fagemo and that was incredibly successful.

So who knows? I guess it is like gambling in general. Mathematically the house should win (2 picks usually > 1 slightly higher pick) but a savvy better can win at least in certain instances where the deck is favorable.

I like this pick better than Grans, since Faber seems to have a more complete package (skating, some skill and hockey sense).

Faber seems to be in the mold of the "modern"-type D-man that is becoming more common in the NHL,
and along the lines of Bjornfot, Mikey Anderson and Cole Hults ---- As pros, all will be around 6'/200 lbs, with good mobility and quick feet,
solid (but not flashy) puck skills, and well-above average hockey sense, and defense-1st, but with some ability on the transition/counter-attack.

We've got a lot of this type in the org, but I don't believe that is a bad thing.
