Not me personally, but I remember my dad telling me about how he was losing his **** at the TV when the devils traded down and Calgary took Trevor Kidd. Didn't think that Brodeur kid was gonna be worth two cents.
Huberdeau. I dunno..I guess I always caught unspectacular games from him just by bad luck, because he never looked like anything special to me in juniors, but he's been terrific so far this year for Florida.
When Anaheim drafted Bobby Ryan it was way outta left field and I think everyone was skeptical on him, especially given his past. We were all getting our Jack Johnson jerseys ready and I think we were disappointed originally... fortunately he lived up to his draft position IMO.
