yeah, that's what I mean. ATD8 also happened in 2007 but I don't think the MLD did.

So yeah, if I'm thinking of the same draft, pitseleh shoulda pwned you all. Maybe your team was ranked unfairly (it would be interesting to re-run some drafts knowing what we know now, Hooley Smith was in MLD4, and Eddie Gerard in MLDs 5 & 6, LOL) but I can't see anyone coming even close to pit's team - that somehow lost in round 1.

I brought Todd bertuzzi and assistant coach Larry Robinson up to the main team.
Yeah, I still count those two because if you didn't take 'em, someone would have. I should mention that of my dozen selected, three were taken by me - Redden, Boudrias & Gardner, and I count those too, unofficially.

- Redden was better than Reinhart and some others taken in the 400s/500s, that should be clear
- Gardner, I never got any feedback on, but Billy Reay was selected right after and I considered Reay strongly and Gardner won the head to head comparison
- Boudrias was called a "good pick" by someone else already. The fact that he's multi-positional, good at a few things, and was well-pimped last draft meant he was definitely getting drafted one way or another.
