For a steal I’m going to skim the obvious Shark steals:
Eklund (7th was a huge jackpot)
Gaudreau (many considered him a early 2nd round talent and easily the 3rd best goalie of the draft)
Weatherby (I mean 102 OA and many said he was a long term kinda whatever project who now looks like a potential 3C soon)
But for more steal type selections I’m going with;
He’s the type of player that has a high ceiling because of the pure talent he possesses. He is not a steal that WILL be a star (like he still has work to do); but he is a steal because if he can utilize his electrifying hands in the pro game, he could easily become a talented top 6 winger.
To keep it short the second name I’m gonna use is a name not many may expect; Adam Raska. 201st OA and he already looks like he could become a useful bottom 6/ 3rd line banger. But more importantly he actually looked like his talent could develop to make him a 30 point guy who will be an irreplaceable heart and soul guy. If Raska can continue this upward trend, he’ll be an amazing selection.
Dahlen (wasn’t really our pick so can’t count him imo)
