"We didn't expect Forsberg to be there at all. So we were delighted to be able to take him, because in most mock drafts we had done and where our scouts had him was way up high," general manager George McPhee said. "Sometimes that happens in a draft; a good player falls because everybody's sort of zoned in on a certain guy and people were going after defensemen and drafted a lot of good defensemen. So we focused on mostly defensemen. So when we got there, we thought, 'Geez, we've got to switch gears here a little bit; this guy's a really good player, let's take him.' "

Interesting.
