When Radulov was drafted he was playing in Russia. He came over to the Q AFTER being drafted, so no.

The line of thinking is called "drafting the best player available." I would hope everyone is familiar with that. If we can't swing a trade at 15 and no forwards projected to go in that range are available, we should select the BPA, and that would be Del Zotto by a longshot.

Besides, we don't know what's going to happen in 2-4 years. We could be in dire need of defensemen after 2010 for all we know. Del Zotto is a safe bet to be a successful NHL player and if we still have a log-jam, he could be used as the foundation for a big trade.
