Ryan McDonagh (39 pts in 119 games... 4th among D-men drafted in 07)
Max Pacioretty (109 pts in 199 games... 8th among those drafted in 07)
PK Subban (75 pts in 157 games... 2nd among D-men drafted in 07... 12th overall)
Yannick Weber (30 pts in 109 games... 6th among D-men drafted in 07)

vs

1998

Eric Chouinard (22 pts in 90 games)
Mike Ribeiro (559 pts in 735 games... 7th in pts among those drafted in 98)
Francois Beauchemin (155 pts in 488 games... 7th in pts among D-men drafted in 98)
Andrei Bashkirov (3 pts in 30 games)
Gordie Dwyer (5 pts in 108 games)
Andrei Markov (368 pts in 633 games... #1 among D-men drafted in 98 and 15th overall)
Michael Ryder (396 pts in 628 games... 14th in pts among those drafted in 98)


I got to go with 1998 for now. 3.5 impact players (98) vs 3 impact players (07).
What's important for us NOW, is the 2007 draft. We still (and hopefully will keep) these two young men for a while.

The Chouinard's pick in 1998 was just plain awful. like the Wickenheiser one in 1981....
