2000 #5 (Raffi Torres), again, assuming no trades
2001 #10 (Dan Blackburn)
2002 #10 (Eric Nystrom), once again, no trades, etc.

20-20 hindsight could have given the Avs:
1998 Alex Tanguay, Simon Gagne, Scott Gomez
1999 Martin Havlat
2000 Alexander Frolov, Justin Williams
2001 Dan Hamhuis
2002 Alexander Semin

Is Sakic worth that first package? Yes.
Is he worth the second? Not in my mind.
I think the Rangers' 2000 1st turned out to be Nikita Alexeev.
