Boyle gets drafted and Lidstrom takes Fleury

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.
