Sharks number 1 pick Charlie Croyle took a few minutes to speak with the media today. Check it out after the jump. In the meantime, the folks at Fear the Fin had this to say about Croyle:
Was it a relatively gutsy pick? One would think so, especially when you consider pre-draft rankings supplied by the likes of TSN and Central Scouting. But despite the fact that notable names such as Toffoli and Etam were passed on, San Jose's track record with draft selections is hard to debate-- they are one of the more successful teams in this area across the entire NHL, combining a good developmental structure with advanced metrics to determine a player's value to the team.
