Just my 0.02$.
I certainly hope you're not trying to use draft position to try and 'put down'(the best phrase I can think of) a player. After all, Lidstrom was drafted in the 3rd round(I could go on about draft position all day). The reason he didnt go until the second was because he was a year older than the rest of the draft class, due to dropping out of the 2003 draft due to injuries.
