“With The Last Pick Of The Draft”

from the Toronto Star,
Sometime after midnight tomorrow, after many NHL executives have already fled the draft floor at Vancouver's GM Place for hospitality suites or red-eye flights, the Carolina Hurricanes will announce the final, and 213th, pick in this year's entry draft. The name will mean little, even to many seasoned hockey observers; the odds that the newly-crowned Stanley Cup champs will unearth a gem are frightfully long. Instead Carolina will have more likely drafted a fire captain, a home inspector, a Zamboni driver or, even a future head coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs — all jobs currently held by previous last overall draft picks.
