What do you think of your 1st rounders since 2001?

2001 - Daniel Blackburn (10)
2002 -
2003 - Hugh Jessiman (12)
2004 - Al Montoya (6)
- (from Cgy) Lauir Korpikoski (19)
2005 - (from Sjs) Mark Staal (12)
2006 - Bobby Sanguinetti (21)
2007 - Alexei Cherepanov (17)
2008 - Michael Del Zotto (20)
2009 - Chris Kreider (19)
2010 - Dylan Mcilrath (10)
2011 - J.T. Miller (15)

You guys are one of only 2 teams that selected more than one goalie in the first round since 2001. Can you guess the other team to do so?
Don't like the McIllrath pick. Remember watching the draft thinking waht are they doing. They could have picked Brandon Gormley, named the top d at the World Juniors this year, but passed him by, and let Phoenix get him at 13th. From what I read, he (Gormley) wasn't expected be around after the top 7, so many teams figured there were some concerns, but he has showed otherwise, while MCIllrath has struggled. Phoneix said after drafting him that they didn't even interivew him thinking he was a top 5 pick. MacIllwrath was rated as a third rounder going into the draft. but considered to be a tough guy. Real poor pick! IMO.
An interesting bit of info. Gormley is from the same small town (200 people) as Brad Richards.
