Did I miss something? Since when do those two take up $16mil?

Maybe I'm just arguing semantics here, but how can you say that 3 picks in the top 50 equals 3 impact players at the NHL level? It's very possible that none of those three picks pan out, and even more likely if none of them are in the first round. There is a reason for rankings, after all. The higher the pick, obviously the higher the likelihood that guy actually becomes an NHL player.

To me, you don't get an "impact" player outside of the Top 5 picks, in any draft. But again, maybe I'm just arguing semantics.
