I remember very well thei DG saying that they did not know Bergeron that well and they took a chance. The kid really surprised them when he jumped directly from Junior to NHL hockey, even if he was a mid second rounder.

The trade with TO and the return is pure BS luck.

Another team that is often lucky at the Draft table is Philadelphia. Giroux, Couturier, Richards and Carter fell on their lap because of other teams total ignorance.
