They couldn't sign these guys before the Top 20 was figured?

Are you saying that either would have made the cut? Not that I'd ask you to do it all again ;)

I think both would be in the top 20, maybe top 10 because their stats look so promising. Koska could be ranked before Funk, and Whittmore before Byron cuz he needs to gain some weight. Good start to improving our depth. This may be a sign that we'll be calling up some guys next year, which also means we'll see some trades.
