Brodeur drafts Brodeur

I thought this was one of the coolest moments of the draft.


Devils did not have a selection in the final 30 picks. General manager Lou Lamoriello worked some magic already having dealt the No. 9 overall pick to the Vancouver Canucks for Cory Schneider, so to cap off the day, he made a dream come true for his franchise player.
Goaltender Martin Brodeur's son, Anthony, was still sitting in the Prudential Center stands undrafted, so Lamoriello made a trade with the Los Angeles Kings to get into the seventh round and the 208th overall pick announcement made for a memorable father/son moment:

wow that's a great moment - and thanks for posting about it - hadn't heard till now. Yeah Lou takes a lot of ____ for the way his Devils have changed the game but nobody ever questioned his class.

good point, that's right - come to think of it. Probably no reason other than good will / having class for Hexy to agree. Hard to know since the story doesn't say what Lou gave the Kings.
