Hanas just went 55th to the Red Wings of all teams, as the broadcast mentioned how big of a Stars fan he is LOL.

The funny thing is he’s probably young enough to be entirely indifferent about the Red Wings.

That's cool - happy for him and his family! He might have some resentment against the Wings for the 2008 Western Conference Finals, but he would have to have a good memory as a kid because he would have been 6 or 7. :lol:

Looks like Yoder went 170 overall to the Penguins in the 6th round. Good for him! :D

You know a team did their homework on a guy when they have to go to Google image search to find a photo of a player and have to settle for cropping a photo of him playing.

Good. I love Faksa like a brother, but I don't want to spend any more 1st round picks on third liners. Swing for the fences in the draft.

So DBD's write-up on Stranges includes a highlight reel video, and... I'm not a skater, but for those of you who are, isn't this the *fargin'* weirdest stride you've ever seen?

Seems to work for him, at least in these highlights.

Yeah, that is the weirdest stride I've seen. He seems to use it in place of crossovers but it does give the impression that he'll pass the puck back or stop but he still maintains speed.

The picture of this Stars pick looks like a CGI rendering of a person, not an actual person.

It’s MC Hammer skating.

On NHL Network they said he has the 10-2 skating style like Brian Rolston did.

Except that Brian Rolston was slow as balls LOL. If he ever makes the show, it'll be known as the Stranges Stride™.
