I'm just surprised by the timing of it, didn't think they'd nab all these guys before the draft.

I mean I would argue that the 2009 draft has potential to be our best draft ever:

Hedman, Ashton, Panik, Hutchings and Janus?? Of course assuming they all hit their potential (things not looking great for Hutchings so far)
If they make it. I think Hedman has the highest ceiling (durr) followed by Panik. Panik really has top flight talent, he just needs to choose to use it all the time. Hutchings and Janus both have talent but are behind a bit because of injury now. Hutchings *can* be a great two way player and I think thats what the FO covets.
