    How did Mark Owuya and Juraj Valach not get drafted? Did they do something to convince teams otherwise or what?

    Because Mark Owuya is incredibly overrated.

    The 2nd Biega brother went undrafted as well which surprised me a hell of a lot more than Mark Owuya going undrafted.

    Owuya, Valach, Doyle, Bezak, Biega, Lahey, Alphonso and Roman Bashkirov all not picked. I'm guessing Brian Burke using his picks on unknowns play a part in this???

    Why did he not get drafted?
     
  10. Owuya's a bad singer, that's why.

    so, he is a good goalie, ottawa should have gotten him in round 5-7, instead of making that ******ed trade, 3 draft picks for one....

    If Billy Sauer can get drafted, Mark Owuya can get drafted. Hard to believe nobody was willing to take a flier on him in the 7th.

    Also kind of surprised that Matt Robertson and Ryan Hayes were not drafted. I don't profess to know a whole lot about them, but from what I had read, I thought both would have went in one of the later rounds.

    Owuya's problems are all with technique. I'd have thought somebody would have taken a chance on his athleticism late in the draft. A good goalie coach might be able to harnass his talent.

    Don't normally agree with you but you're dead on with Owuya. He can't play at all. Zero athleticism. Big and stiff and can't react to anything outside of his body.

    Big and stiff for sure, but zero athleticism? Uh, what?
