Biggest Reach(es) of the draft - Stamkos, Karlsson
Biggest blunder selection of the draft - Punch Imlach coaching the Big M.
A player always taken too high, finally getting picked where he should in the draft - Doug Jarvis - Pick 334. Went 265 last year. Doesn't seem too high for 964 consecutive games played. Tough for your opponent to play the injury card with Jarvis.
Most overrated player taken - Tie - Bad Joe Hall and Terrible Ted Green are not top 310 players. There were more skilled dmen available such as Leo Reise, Jr. and Frank Patrick who also create less PPs for the other team.
Most puzzling pairing of defensemen - Dave Burrows - Ted Green - Who's the puck mover?
A funny/dramatic story you've learned about since the start of the draft - Mark Howe admits Gordie was a dirty player. I like this, because Gordie is the dirtiest player I've ever seen. He used his stick as a weapon and didn't care how badly he cut or hurt the other player. I like him and don't judge him though, because when he entered the league in 46 that was the status quo.
