I think you're well in the minority. A fair question might be would you take Kostitsyn over Seabrook, Getzlaf, Perry, Kesler, Richards and Parise as well?

However, another thing to point out is that the Canadiens still managed to avoid disasters like Jessiman, Nilsson or Bernier and picked a good player. In fact of the players drafted higher than Kostitsyn, he was a better choice than Zherdev, Michalek and Coburn.

On another note, the shocking thing of that draft is how Anahiem and Philadelphia both hit gold on their 2 first round picks respectively.
