136 goals, 298 points in 322 NHL games. No stanley cups. No individual awards. Never been top-10 in league scoring, just once cracked the top-20. Played four and a half seasons.

Yes, he had a good playoffs last year and a good first half of this season, but a great career that does not make.

It'd be real nice if he's put on the fourth line as a greenhorn, perhaps as backup option instead of starter on the top line. There are several wingers, even several left wingers, with more dominance, accomplishments and just as much touted talent, left to be drafted in an all-time context.

That said, he does count as the one active pro player for the time requirement, even if he's best drafted in like rounds 16 or so.

And this is an all-time draft, so 21st century performers should be honored as well.
