Jeff Blair also panned the pick in the Globe and Mail this morning.

Whatever. It's a good pick, the guy has a nice game. I've just been reading on DraftExpress how Val has the highest defensive rebounding rate, and highest true shooting percentage, of all the bigs in the draft this year. Against better competition, too.

I agree that he might never be an all star, but he's going to be a solid starter for years to come. Being an all star is more about generating excitement. Though, I think that with his style of play if he can bulk up and start beasting against weaker opponents he'll generate more than a few highlight reel plays.
