There was a thread for players who should have been drafted but weren't. This is the one for the opposite.

Who was drafted that should not have been drafted, or you were at least suprised they were.

Andong Song is the obvious one, but who were some other players?

Yeah, Song was a surprise. I also didn't expect Riley Bruce to get drafted.

Bokondji Imama. Thought maybe the Habs would take him in the 7th, surprised to see Tampa take him in the 6th.

Markus Ruusu (DAL). Maybe they mixed him up with Veini Vehvilšinen.

Sens drafted 3 overagers one who is 20 years old. I feel like not all three would be drafted by other teams.

Is it normal for a team to draft three overagers? Is their any precedent? It seems like the sens do draft quite a few overagers

Christian Wolanin is the 20 year old one although he use to play forward and switched to defense. Seems like hes a better dman then forward

Sergey Zborovsky. Complete waste of a pick

According to Hextall, he said Flyers prospect Ivan Fedotov seems to been an unknown. Seems like a solid pick for the 7th round though.

Brock and several of the guy who follow the OHL incredibly closely were surprised we took Lorentz. Granted it's the 7th round so I can't really be angry but I'd have sooner took a shot at the other Aho.

Wouldn't say it was a wasted pick. Was he picked earlier than expected? Yes he was, but he is still a good prospect.

Nah, Kari Takko has a pretty good viewing of both (and other Finn goalies) and decided that Ruusu had more potential, plus probably size was an deciding factor...
