The two times he had higher picks he did pretty well too. Carey Price and AK. I still think AK is the most talented out of the bunch, remains to be seen if he'll ever explode for 30-40 goals. He has the talent to do it imo.

A lot of people harp about Richards, Carter, Getzlaf, which is easy in hindsight, but AK was very highly touted at the time, slotted ahead of all them by most reports I remember reading and argued as the most talented forward of the entire draft. Epilepsy was the main concern with why he was even available for us to pick and so far so good on that front.
