Definitely agree on Stavjana. I'd love to know more.

from SIHR I can see he played a ton for the Czechs internationally in the 80s... which means he was likely no worse than the hundreds of NHL defensemen who occupied #3-4 spots at the time... but was he better? and how much? that's what will determine if he was a mediocre or great pick. But the wealth of international experience and the time in which it occurred precludes it from being a bad one, IMO.

I thought we had some pretty good info on Honken already. He got my 2nd place vote after Paton!
