Price was a lottery pick at #5 (in 2005, when every team had a shot at #1) and Pouliot was the Wild's #4 pick that same year. I guess you're referring to superstars like Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin, and Stamkos.How many Cups have the Penguins won since they drafted Fleury, Malkin, and Crosby (#1, #2, #1 in successive years? Not all high picks are in that class. Fleury at #1 isn't. Neither is DiPietro at #2.? Just one.Then there was Alain Daigle at #1. The last Hab #1 pick was Doug Wickenheiser, who dudn't even turn out to be a superstar. It's not just finishing last, it's also the year in which the Habs would have a lottery pick.
