And? Who in the ones you named in your 1st post made it? They made the team alright, but didn't prove a thing in the NHL and won't automatically do so. Bit of a biased question you got for us there...

Look at Ribeiro's age (23), Ward's (24), Hainsey's (22), Hossa's (22) and Ryder's (23) and then compare with the Savard era picks you named in this thread: Komisarek (21), Higgins (20), Plekanec (20), Perezhogin (20) and Kastsitsyn (18!). Do I need to explain why this comparison is useless and also why no one should actually go and praise Houle's picks BEFORE they actually prove something in the NHL, which none of them did?

BTW a lot would agree that Komisarek, even one year younger, is now a better Dman than Hainsey.
