Pretty incredible
Don't forget High School player Jake Gardiner with the 17th pick as well. Coaching staff seems to love Rakell as well he just doesn't have that aura around him like the others. Same can be said for William Karlsson. Early results from this draft seem to be good as well (Lindholm - a suspected reach by many / Kerdiles) but lets reserve judgement for a few years.

That last half decade + has seem to be very fruitful for Ducks scouts. Keeping fingers crossed that it continues for a very long time.
