Liking Pontus Aberg at #37 for the #Preds. Good pickup for someone with First-Round talent.

So @PredsNHLgets Sissons and and Aberg, two guys that could have went in 1st, in the 2nd round. Thats drafting at its finest. — Dale the Wombat (@wombathockey) June 23, 2012 Should Aberg play a game for the Preds, he will overtake Ramzi Abid at the top of the team’s alphabetical listing of players. — Jim Diamond (@diamondhockey) June 23, 2012
