Fischer wasn't really off the board at all. He was generally ranked around where we drafted him - some had him lower in the first, but not so much so that it was a shocker of a pick.

Subban wasn't so much off the board as he was a really, really risky pick. I mean, just read some pre-draft scouting reports on him. The general consensus was that he didn't know where his own end was and didn't seem interested in finding out. So I'm not going to fault anyone for not predicting he'd win the Norris one day or anything.
