Stars that came from Nowhere

Thanks for the responses. I was thinking more alongs "fringe NHLers" that came from nowhere to become stars. I'm looking more for players who played through a couple of seasons showing no signs of superstar potential and then actually becoming one.
For example, I know in Datsyuk's case that it was more of a mess up by NHL scouts overlooking him than him never showing potential. Also, Datsyuk did great in his rookie season and then never looked back from there. So despite his low draft status, he's not the kind of player I'm looking for in this thread.
Never realized Adam Oates was drafted so late. But for those that saw him start his career, did it look like he'd succeed from the start? Or did he actually played subpar hockey in the beginning? Stats have limited use judging this.
