Is it any less lucky than picking a guy like Franzen or Zetterberg in the 7th round?

Fact of the matter is that picking players requires significant amounts of luck. You shouldn't hold that against the organization for bringing up a top 4 d-man. They saw something in him and offered him a contract. GOOD!
