Some people bashed the Jackets draft in the days after it (more in the national media than here). I always liked it and like it even more now. Doug MacLean came into the first day with one 1st and four 3rds. He left with one 1st, two 2nds and two 3rds.

He turned the #4 (which became Ladd) into Alex Picard and Kyle Wharton.

He moved two 3rd rounders for Adam Pineault.

In the 3rd, he picked up an obscure Russian dman -- Andrei Plehanov -- who is playing for Team Russia in the CHL Challenge. He was +3 last night.

On the second day, he picked up Petr Pohl who leads Gatineau in goals, Lennart Petrell who sounds like he could be a class-A agitator, and a few high school kids (Rob Page being the one I like the most).

Good job DM.
