Wingels was also a 6th rounder, so you have Pavs (03), Nabby (94), Murray (99), and Demers (08). That's 4 in nearly two decades. Considering we usually pick up multiple 7ths, it's not that impressive.
don't forget justin braun, frazer mclaren too. that's a hearty compliment of players is it not. and by that standard, we only have two sj first rounders still playing with us - marleau and couture. well i guess stuart counts now too. and we only have 1 2nd rounder still playing with us - vlassic.

so our home grown 7th rounders number pavs, murray, demers, bruan, and mclaren, which exceeds our homegrown 1st AND 2nd rounders combined.
