Yikes! That is a sick group to have! Oh yeah Suter was selected at #7! You wanna win the cup have three or more players of the '03 draft!
Ahh the 2003 argument, my favorite. I brought the 03 draft whenever someone was saying most of the credit for this team should go to Dave Taylor, which is one of the stupidest things I've ever read. The 2003 draft was supposed to be the one that jump started our franchise, we had 3 first round picks and we had to hit on AT LEAST 2 of them and have those guys be cornerstones of our franchise. Thank God we got our captain in that draft but Dave Taylor stunk at the rest, I mean really? Jeff Tambellini and Brian Boyle? Anaheim got Getzlaf and Perry, Philadelphia got Jeff Carter and Mike Richards.
Oh well, no need to nag now, that draft was important in our Stanley Cup victory, not because of Dave Taylor, but because DL. Hopefully we get another big fish from that draft in free agency this summer too.
PS, the 2003 NBA draft was one of the best ever too, was a real good year for sports (LeBron, Carmelo, Bosh, Wade) - just a random fact
