How does a team like the Red Wings continue to find gems late in the draft over the years? They picked Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Franzen all after the 3rd round. Dallas got Benn at #129 in 07; Boston got Lucic(2nd round) and Marchand(3rd round) in the 06 draft. So what is the answer?
The Rangers picked a franchise goaltender in the 7th round.

This seems to get overlooked for whatever reason.
