Not sure this is the place (too lazy/tired to dig out the GDTs right now), but looking at our 2012 draft, it occurred to me that we drafted heavily out of our main two positions of need (in our prospect pool) - offensive defensemen and centers. Bystrom, Lindell, and Sinitsyn are all offensive defenders, and the only forward we took who isn't a center was Troock. Kiviaho is the only other player to break that mold, but we needed another goalie to be fair.

We also sheered away from monster sized prospects. Lindell was the tallest at 6'3", but he seems like he's a stick. Faksa, Troock, and Sinitsyn are the only ones with a good amount of weight to toss around.

And it still looks like we had a great draft early on (no telling how it'll look in 4-5 years). How we managed to do that blows my mind (and I'm sure I'm not the first to notice or point this out) but it just makes me that much happier with our offseason.
