I kept lookin and listenin' for someone, (at least locally) to point out the non-draft signee's he has spotted and scooped up without any satisfaction! Although they aren't blow you away talents, they've made it to the nhl and have played thier roles. Jay Beagle, Tyler Sloan. And don't forget players drafted by another team who couldn't see the talent they had, don't offer said prospect a contract so in swopes GMGM and scoop him up, like David Steckel. That mean's they are not just a 'number one draftee talant finder'. I didn't think they were giving GMGM the credit he deserved. Did I miss someone that falls in those two catagories? Tell me.
It works the other way too ... Oduya would probably look good in our top 4 these days. Bet they regret letting him get away.

But yeah, Steckel in particular seems like a good find. I'd say Beagle and Sloan aren't established yet, but I'll root for 'em.
