If you want a clip of this then take a video camera into a cow field and take some pictures of what you see on the ground.
“I recall the decision at the (draft) table” recalled Leafs General Manager John Ferguson Jr.. “There were three or four names. We looked at (European scout) Thommie Bergman and we said, ‘is this a guy we think can play some day?'
“He said, ‘absolutely.’ We made the pick. It was a seventh rounder and who knows where it goes but give Anton Stralman credit. He has really made some strides.”
Ferguson challenged his scout on his pick as any good GM should do at the draft table. The fact that he was still doing it in the 7th round shows that he was into the process.
