It would be nice to have a "steal" again. Kaberle was probably are last good one although nobody saw him as what he became, so it might be hard to catorgorize him as a steal. I see stealing a player as someone who was rated highly or at least rated in the first round who drops for whatever reason, or who is lesser known but highly rated by those who have seen him play. Maybe an Antropov who didn't have his early leg issues might have become a steal. For other teams, Sakic was a steal for Quebec. (drafted 15th overall while Leafs picked Luke Richardson 7th overall).

Hard to say, fun to predict. Impossible to know until they have had a good stab at the NHL. Brendan Bell was a disappointment, but I wouldn't say he was rated as high as Finn is. Bell is still only 29 but has not been able to stick with any team despite flashes of promise. I would hope Finn turns out to be more of a sure thing.
