I'm alright with what the Avs did overall. I'm warming up to the Shattenkirk pick, though I still would have rather seen them swing for the fence with Cherepanov or Esposito in round one.
They went heavy on college kids again and didn't take a Euro until the 6th round. They certainly addressed their organizational needs early (defense, goaltending), showing that, at least for this draft, their philosophy has shifted.
Here's a fun fact. Avs 2nd rounder Colby Cohen is Jeremy Bloom's cousin.
