Far from lucky.
Most GM's and hockey people knew Kari had the talent to be good. His drive wasn't there but the talent was.
A change of scenery and being on his ass to stop eating cheeseburgers everyday helped him get into shape and get back to the reason he was chosen so high in his draft year.
That's not lucky. That's doing your homework on a player you know has the talent but just needed the motivation to succeed.
