Lawton Praises Tokarski, Harju
In an article for the Lightning's website, GM Brian Lawton praised late round picks Dustin Tokarski and Johan Harju. In particular, the article states there is a "strong opportunity" Harju will be signed for the 2010-2011 season. The money quote from Lawton regarding Harju:
â€œI wasnâ€™t here or part of it, but he fits the late-round mold,â€ Lawton said. â€œMaybe he is a little older, for whatever reason hasnâ€™t been drafted, but you can see he is coming. I commend the staff for a pick like that. We need to have more of them.â€
BoltProspects respectfully poses the following question to Brian Lawton: while you're at it, why not acquire the rights to Harju's talented lifelong teammate Linus Omark from Edmonton? Just a thought.
