many Preds fans have lamented that we never sucked badly enough to have multiple top 3 picks... would have definitely changed the franchise's history if we had drafted Heatley, Kovalchuk or Ovechkin... (of course trotz would have made them all two way forwards)
I always think about what would have happened even if we got Lecavalier instead of Legwand. Nashville was set to pick 1st overall that draft, but we lost the draft lottery and had to pick 2nd.

We just got unlucky that during our building years, the 1st round drafts were terrible compared to now. Legwand + Finley vs Kane + Toews
