Coming down the first round I really wanted Getz and Giroux at 1.10 and 2.1, but once Shakes snagged Getz I figured I might as well get goalie out of the way. Somewhat early I think in this draft, but I didn't mind the slight reach here cuz Price will anchor my team quite well.
Same at the end of round three it was semin and st louis on my board, but having st louis snagged lead me to Yandle.
There have been some stretch picks but that is normal with no trading. Price might have been a little early but I doubt he would have gotten back to you.
