DT seemed to draft on skill and potential MUCH more than for hockey sense and leadership qualities, which are the two things DL and crew seem to care about above all else.
Good points. I pretty much guarantee that DL wouldn't have taken Boyle, Pushkarev or Corvo among others. I'd love to ask him what he'd done had he had those 3 firsts in 2003.
