Simon Gagne ( Drafted 22nd overall)
Scott Gomez
Mike Fisher
Mike Ribiero
Brad Richards ( Everyone missed the boat on this one)

The list goes on but seeing as how Gagne got drafted just 2 spots behind Parker kinda makes me thnik what the hell was on PL's mind that day. I know we needed toughness but theres a reason why enforcers arent drafted high.
This guy asked to be drafted at #20... You don't ask why or argue when he asks you something
