We had a crazy, crazy, crazy defenseman run (8D in the first 3 rounds
) in the Smythe that delayed goalies a bit and some of the upper tier skaters (like Parise).
Pietrangelo went 39th in the Smythe. 60th/63rd/73rd in other divisions.
Phaneuf went 43rd in the Smythe. 63rd/73rd/80th in other divisions.
