It's not often a team drafts a player like Hamilton the year they win the Cup. 2010-2011 was a massively good year for the Bruins and not just because they won the Cup.
Thankfully it's happened for us twice.....too bad that David Hale couldn't have been the trifecta.

I still enjoy how the Leafs were one of the teams that passed on Petr Sykora in 1995. They drafted a hulking defenseman named Jeff Ware. One of the reasons they took Ware was because he was family friends with one of the Leafs braintrust (assistant GM Bill Watters if I recall correctly). Watters gave his personal stamp of approval on Ware.....who would play in 21 career NHL games.
Lindback is so overrated. Lightning will crash and burn with their goaltending, that people are hyping up so much. Their top six offensively is great, their bottom six is average, and their defense is pretty solid, but Lindback is just not a starting NHL goalie right now.
