Some story lines:
- Oilers nab another Russian in the 1st rnd, filling a big team need, maybe even more improtant than Yakupov down the road.
- Flames draft 2 kids born in Calgary plus an offensive dynamo
- Habs draft prospect from la belle province
- Leafs draft son of enforcer
- So do Jets!
- Sens get an ice warrior
- Avs brings a big blueliner back home! (not that much of a shock).
- Devils cash in on Grigorenko situation take 2.
- Caps refurbish their Swedish prospect ranks

Do they make the right selection, hypothetically speaking?
I'd be okay with drafting that Zadorov kid. Only worry about big kids like that is if their foot speed can develop enough to be an NHLer... But I think it's safe to say that this years first rounder may not be NHL ready.
