Biggest Steal(s) of the draft - Bain outside of the top-500 is just wrong
Biggest Reach(es) of the draft - Lidstrom at 7th overall (Before Shore, Hull and a half dozen others? Really? Jagr, Hasek and Lafleur are greater, don't most of us think? The Lids love gone out of control)
Smartest/best strategic pick in the draft - Moog as Fuhr's backup
Biggest blunder selection of the draft - Oatman as a first liner?
A Player finally getting respect in the draft - Harris
A player always taken too high, finally getting picked where he should in the draft - Bobrov at 738th in the 24th round, extra skater (sounds about right)
A player you've discovered in this draft -Sandlin
Most underrated player taken - Irvin
Most overrated player taken - Konstantinov
Favorite line of the draft - Syd Howe - Darryl Sittler - Dino Ciccarelli
Favorite checking line of the draft - Bob Gainey-Guy Carbonneau-Bobby Schmautz
Best assembled line of the draft - Bert Olmstead - Jean Beliveau (C) - Andy Bathgate
Worst assembled line of the draft - Mike McPhee - Bobby Holik - Anders Hedberg
Favorite pairing of defensemen - Gary Suter - Ken Morrow
Most puzzling pairing of defensemen -Scott Stevens - Vladimir Konstantinov
Team in the other conference it'd be interesting to meet in the finals - Guelph Platers
Team in the other conference you wouldn't want to meet in the finals - Pittsburgh Bankers
A funny/dramatic story (related to the ATD) you've learned about since the start of the draft - Gerard beat up coach Ross (hospitalized him even) after the latter hit some other guy by mistake, as told in Conn Smythe's autobiography.
