2. Several years ago, I recall praying that they would somehow take Jordin Tootoo in the 3rd round. Sather took Garth Murray. Now I like Murray, but would have prefered Tootoo.
3. Last year, my top choice was Phaneuf. When he fell, my backup was 1) Getzlaf 2) Nilsson. Sather took Jessiman. I like him and admit that his top-end is probably more than Getzlaf, but I would have preferred the latter.

And now we have this year. To me, if either Olesz or Ladd are available at #6, Sather has to take either of them. Not trade down, not take a Stafford becuase he scored well on his psych. test and his uncle was Sather's equipement manager. However, if the previous years are an indication, that's exactly the way Sather will go.
Tootoo over Murray? Are you kidding me?
Nilsson so far looks like a major bust, thank god we didn't get him.

Falardeau is the only major draft error. I am not yet sold on Jessiman, but at least I can understant that.
