Boyle gets drafted and Lidstrom takes Fleury
17. Dan Boyle, San Jose, D
18. Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh, G


Staal played against Boyle enough when the D-man was with the Lightning, so he's aware of exactly what the puck-rushing defenseman is capable of. Good pick there by Staal, who needed another puck-rushing D-man.

Fleury is the fourth goalie picked, and he is definitely a candidate for the Vezina Trophy after a tough start. Lidstrom must not hold a grudge because Fleury robbed the Wings in the '09 Final.
Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
