The three prospects were dissappointing to say the least, I could see their skating would never allow them to be stars in the nhl. I got to know Floyd Smith a bit having seen him around different rinks, at that time Domi was playing for the Saints and all he did was fight but I'd watch him in practise and could see his skating wasn't bad and he had a decent shot and some skill. I mentioned this to Floyd and he looked at me like you can't be serious that off season Domi was traded to the Rangers for a guy who never played but a few NHL games. I'll say this about Floyd he wanted to take Joe Sakic but Brophy went to Ballard that he needed size of the back end thus they took Richarson, I was at that draft in 87 it was held in Detroit at the Joe best draft I've ever been too all the Pizza and Drinks were Free, and believe me the Pizza at the Joe is much better than you can get at the outlets all over the world. Ilitch's have always done it right.
