Or you could draft Tyler Myers (#12) and Tuukka Rask (#21) over Dave Chyzowski (#2) And even still, Paille and Ballard are solid NHLers, so in all honesty we shouldn't be too upset if we get players of that caliber, it's much better then getting complete duds.

There are going to be busts at #2 just like there will be at #12 and #21.Sure, a #2 pick has a higher chance of becoming an impact NHL player but there are great players to be had all throughout the first round.Looking back at our draft history, every time we have had 2 or more 1st round picks we have come out with some great drafts, so I am all for holding on to these 2 1st round picks...Hell, let's see if we can get a pick in the #25-30 range for 42 and 44!

But on the flip side, I could see why some people would also take the risk to acquire a franchise player.That is what makes the NHL draft such an exciting event, is the mystery of what is going on behind the scenes!
