Ottawa stocked up on Centers, traded Yashin who many thought was their best Center for a guy named Chara, how did that work out? I remember many people saying the Pens were stupid for drafting Jordy Staal, well that worked out well.

BPA, almost always, it's rare a occasion when I would pick for need.
The centerpiece of that trade was the second overall pick, which got them Jason Spezza, really.
