I would also qualify Svitov (5th overall) as a highly drafted player.
Other guys you did not include like Weimer (8th overall), Daymond Langkow (5th overall again certainly qualifies as a highly drafted player), Paul Mara (7th overall) and probably a few others.
They drafted top 10 an awful lot of times. I wouldn't remember the exact circumstances they parted with those guys so I do not know how each of them figures out in your analysis.
Note also that in the category "traded draft picks", I can think of at least one huge omission: in 1999 they traded the 4th overall, I believe. Or at least it was a top 4 pick.
Very interesting stuff but got me intrigued and now I am wondering how all the other assets figure out in the equation
Just to nitpick, Svitov went #3 overall.
