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.

That 1999 pick for Tampa Bay was originally the 1st overall pick, which they dealt to Chicago for 2 third round picks (Brett Scheffelmaier and Jimmie Olvestad) and the 4th pick.
They then dealt the 4th pick to the Rangers for Nicklas Sundstrom Dan Cloutier, 1st rounder in 2000 (Nikita Alexeev), and a 3rd rounder in 2000 (
