Karlsson last D-man to go, Havlat to Team Lidstrom
27. Erik Karlsson, Ottawa, D (Team Staal)
28. Martin Havlat, Minnesota, W (Team Lidstrom)


Karlsson is the last D-man chosen. Staal had one more round to nab him, but he went with him early.

Havlat, a replacement player here for the injured Ales Hemsky, will be motivated to play for Nicklas Lidstrom. He played against him while in Chicago and still does as a member of the Wild. Havlat is having a solid season for the Wild, who are also playing some seriously good hockey lately.
Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
