Rask-21st overall
Bergfors-23rd overall
Oshie-24th overall
Downie-29th overall

and these are just the first round picks picked after him is doesnt include the later rounds with: James Neal, M E Vlasic, Pavelec, Statsny, Lattendresse, Raymond, Letang, Yandle and a few others
Every team has years like that. Hell, in 03 Jessiman, Nilsson, Steve Bernier were all chosen before Parise, Getzlaf, Burns, Kesler, Richards, Perry (all 1st rounders). That's not even mentioning half the scrubs picked before the likes of Eriksson, Bergeron, Weber, Backes, Pavelski, Enstrom, Byfuglien, and Halak.
