Sorry, I should have been more clear.. I meant in comparison to other draft years. There is no denying the fact that thus far, Sedin/Sedin/Stefan/Brendl is vastly inferior to Lecavalier/Legwand/Stuart/Allen (1998) and Thornton/Marleau/Jokinen/Luongo (1997). Granted those two draft classes have had a couple more years to develop but I just don't see the Sedins, Stefan or Brendl putting up the kinds of numbers that Legwand and Lecavalier did last year. In relative perspective, I'd definitely say that 1999's top 4 was a bust. You can't honestly tell me that you'd rather have Henrik and Daniel over Marleau and Thornton..
