Just had a hell of a 2016 draft. I had no 1st round picks but I saw a couple of early second rounders that looked good so I traded my 1st next year for a mid first (like 24) and a high second (I think 34). Drafted a 6'1 LW (20 years old) with my first rounder. He was supposed to go in the early second but he was one of only 3 players left with 3.5 star potential who was a forward. I needed LW's so I wanted him badly.

With my early second I drafted a 5'10 playmaker for Slovakia, who was 3.5 stars as well. Then, with my original second round pick, I drafted a huge 6'5 LW Victor Eberle, at 54th overall. He was a playmaker.

Turns out, All three had 3.5 stars. Nice finds. But what's better, is that Lupul and the Slovak were 76 OVERALLS, and Eberle was a 77!! Right out of the draft!. Eberle plays on my 4th line and is great to play with. Not too slow and can pass really well (84 for passing)

Just became really lucky with some guys who I scouted.
