Biggest Steal of the draft Helmut Balderis
Biggest Reach of the draft Punch Broadbent
Smartest/best strategic pick in the draft Either you love them or not, getting Claude Lemieux for the Sedin Twins was a very smart move.
Biggest blunder selection of the draft Don't know, The Leafs body of work at defence?
A Player finally getting respect in the draft Milan Novy / Hopefully Ivan Hlinka
A player always taken too high, finally getting picked where he should in the draft Vladimir Konstantinov (230). Perfect spot for him.
A player you've discovered in this draft I didn't knew who Jaroslav Jirik was before the draft
Most underrated player taken I'll hit on the nail again, but Ivan Hlinka on a 4th line = underrated
Most overrated player taken We say him draft after draft, but Clark Gillies. Hopefully some day we'll see him a GOOD 25%.
Favourite line of the draft Bobby Hull-Max Bentley-Cam Neely. Would be so exciting to watch! Not sure about how well they would mesh together.
Best assembled line of the draft ''Busher'' Jackson - Milt Schmidt - Gordie Drillon. Bargain basement 1st liner on both side, with a tremendous 2-way centre to cover their flaws and strong enough to wrok with them offensively.
Worst assembled line of the draft Vsevolod Bobrov-Bill Cowley-Bobby Bauer
Favourite pairing of defensemen emile "butch" BOUCHARD (A) - #19 larry ROBINSON (A)
Most puzzling pairing of defensemen Carl Brewer-Nikolai Sologubov
Team in the other conference it'd be interesting to meet in the finals Kimberley Dynamiters, love the team concept
Team in the other conference you wouldn't want to meet in the finals Philadelphia Flyers, I would have a hrd time containing the offence. Hasek would need to pull miracles in a few of these games!

Also, feel free to add any other comments or reflections about your experience/team this year. - Hopefully the constant flame wars between posters will stop next draft. It was worst than usual, and stray away from discussion.
