Nill, who in recent years had handed more draft responsibility to McDonnell, helped uncover several late-round steals like Pavel Datsyuk (171st overall in 1998), Henrik Zetterberg (210th in ’99), Johan Franzen (97th in 2004) and Jonathan Ericsson (291st in ’02).
I like this because the last few drafts have been great for us. much better than the ones from 04-08.
also all of those Steals were more Hakan Andersson than Nill. were still going to miss him but none the less its nice to know our drafting isn't going to go to crap. and it never hurts to have another friend in a GM's chair come trade deadline.
