A bit of a tangent here, but I thought I'd point it out.

1. Hellberg is looking like a very good pick, early in the second round. (Though Saad going after him burns)

2. Every complains about the Finley pick, but can you name the five players taken after him? Kris Beech, Taylor Pyatt, Jamie Lundmark, Branislav Mezei, and Oleg Saprykin. It's not like the other top guys fared much better. That draft class just sucked, plain and simple. Not a single Top 4 D, Top 9 forward, or NHL goalie was taken between picks 3 (Sedin) and 21 (Boynton, who was never incredible)

3. No defense for Pickard, that was a bad pick.

I agree that we should take goalies later, but it's not like Finley was a terrible pick or Hellberg is looking bad.
