I don't think so. If you look back at most drafts, if you get 2 good players out of it, it's considered a success. Especially if the draft picks are impact players (Radulov, Rinne), 3 or more, it's a monster draft.

Russia issue aside, I think it was a successful draft. THe only draft we've had that beats it out is the 2003 draft, IMO. Even that draft has only yeilded two impact players so far.

2003- Suter, Weber, (Klein, Sulzer- yet to be proven)
2002- Only Upshall
2001- Hamhuis, Tootoo
2000- Only Harntell
1999- Erat, Hall, (Hutchison- fringe)
1998- Legwand, Skrastins, (Arkhipov)

2004-2008, to early to judge.
