After reading this and many other articles about how the Ottawa Senators were going to have a terrible 2011-2012 season, I could understand why the organization felt the need to draft a foward that would provide a much-needed offense. But at the same time I couldn't stop thinking about the New Jersey Devils. I was terribly jealous of them. I often wondered what we would have done if we had won the 4th overall pick and had the luxury to draft Adam Larsson or consolation prize Dougie Hamilton if Larsson was already gone https://www.ottawafansstore.com/Jonathan_Aspirot_Pillow_Cover-362 . Would we pass on Larsson and draft a foward anyway?Who that foward was supposed to be? It was clearly one of Sean Couturier, Jonathan Huberdeau or Ryan Strome that we were going to draft but we somehow managed to get none of them and ended up with the lower ranked Mika Zibanejad. This Year, Adam Larsson showed flashes of brilliance and played a strong rookie season https://www.ottawafansstore.com/Zdeno_Chara_Hoodie-60 , Couturier looked superb on Philly's third line and Hamilton had an incredible season with the Niagara Icedogs and is now widely regarded as one of the best defense prospect in the world. Zibanejad is actually the only one who had an average season.-Dougie Hamilton, 6'4'', 193lbs50gp with the Niagara Icedogs - 17 goals - 55 assists - 77 points - plus 37-Sean Couturier. 6'3'', 197lbs77gp with the Philadephia Flyers - 13 goals - 14 assists - 27 points - plus 18 And a playoffs hat trick! -Adam Larsson, 6'3'', 200lbs65gp with the New Jersey Devils - 2 goals - 16 assists - 18 points - minus 7-Mika Zibanejad, 6'1'', 200lbs26gp with Djurgardens IF Stockholm - 5 goals - 8 assists - 13 points - minus 29gp with the Sens - 0 goals - 1 assist - 1 point - minus 3-What it suggests for the future?
