Nikolai Kulemin (2/44 in 2006) / Mikhail Grabovski (5/150 in 2004) / Clarke MacArthur (3/74 in 2003)
Nazem Kadri (1/7 in 2009) / Matthew Lombardi (3/90 in 2002) / Colby Armstrong (1/21 in 2001)

GOALTENDERS
James Reimer (4/99 in 2006) / Jonas Gustavsson (undrafted)


So this is our team based on draft positions.

It might be interesting to have a look at other teams' rosters and see where the numbers go (which team have the lowest/highest draft number averages... etc.)

For the Leafs, (7+5+5+44+150+74+7+90+21+159+227+99=888/12players=74) our Forwards average at 3/74. Our blue-line is at (9+116+159+5+194+7+79=569/7players=81) 3/81. Lastly, our goalies are 4/99 seeing as Gustavsson went undrafted.

I bolded the draft numbers I thought were particularly surprising, given the playing strength of the player, particularly Grabovski and Gunnarsson (with the reverse going to Komisarek).
