It goes interesting, when you exclude all the obvious Håkan-picks. Everything comes from Europe and mostly from Sweden. Also Datsyuk-case is well reported being Andersson's own. What comes to Zetterberg's and Datsyuk, being only luck, I don't write that at all. There's still the eye for skill in play. 5 rounds have been drafted and group of players are still left. You like of some players and others like different players. I've been in a keeper league for 9 years, and it's always funny and most entertaining moment, when we do our seasonal draft. If I have 1st round picks, yeah I have 1st round talent with those picks. Then we go to 2nd round and I still got guys ranked on 1st round on my lists. Then we go to 3rd round I start getting my 2nd round guys on the 3rd. Same at 4th round. Or latest rounds I got 3rd round guys from my list. I didn't even list all the players, because there was somebody I didn't like at all or have seen them at all. Totally excluded. But it just feels phenomenally well, when I can get better ranked players, the lower we go in rounds. Versus my own list. And also those players have been panning out pretty well, of course not everybody, but versus competition, my league-mates. So there we are. In theoretical World, I could have drafted Datsyuk at 6th round, but he was a 3rd rounder on my list. Teams just do their list on various ways and that makes the difference. Detroit at 90's overvalued midget skill. That's why we hit with these Datsyuks, Zetterbergs and Hudlers. That's we drafted Yuri Butsaev, Anatoly Ustyugov, Andrei Samokhvalov, Dmitri Semenov, Mikael Johansson etc. They thought that if this midget or this midget or this midget will get over their physical weaknesses, it becomes a fine player for out puck-posession hockey. And they did bet on their possible growth spurt based on the parents/brothers. This has been discussed for decades. Others excluded them, because their identity was proably size and strength. NHL was different at 1999. That's why I wouldn't look much before the salary cap. Then most of teams started drafting skill , because new rules for obstruction came etc. There has been a lot more parity after that, and I'm interested more of those results. Detroit looks superior in everything what includes Datsyuk and Zetterberg. More interested about years after those. We can already re-draft everything until 2015. Just find a way to separate players.
