"anybody want Senators defenceman Brian Lee, a healthy scratch for 25 games this season? Not the best first-round pick ever. Mind you, Tom Renney, as good a judge of hockey horseflesh as there is, was in charge of the Rangers' scouting when they took big forward Hugh Jessiman (No. 12 overall in 2003). "Yup. That was me," said the Oilers coach. Jessiman, now playing for the Chicago Blackhawks' AHL farm club in Rockford, has never played an NHL game."

there's also a nice little mention about Cally in the article as well.
I kinda want to know who Clarke wanted (was he around?) but it doesn't really matter. Anyone would have been better. Aaaaaaaaand
