Place in the draft order of the past ATD champions:

ATD2011: 27/40 (Messier)

ATD2010: 4/30 (Howe)

ATD#12: 28/32 (Sawchuk)

ATD#11: 5/28 (Harvey)

ATD#10: 16/28 (Lidström)

ATD#9: 21/32 (Mikita)

ATD#8: 14/28 (Potvin)

ATD#7: 28/28 (Hall)

ATD#6: 3/20 (Howe)

A somewhat interesting pattern which perhaps sheds a bit of light on where the best values are in the first round.

- two teams have won by taking elite goalies very late.
- two teams have won by taking Gordie Howe in the top-4.
- two teams have won by drafting elite defensemen in the middle of the round.
- two teams have won by drafting strong two-way forwards in the latter half of the round, but not at the end.
- one team won by taking Doug Harvey 5th.

Not a single one of the winners has drafted a one-way offensive player (like Gretzky, Lemieux, Hull, Richard, Coffey, Taylor, Esposito, Jagr, etc.) in the first round. Hmmmm...yes, we are a conservative bunch.
