Talent at picks until proven otherwise, by them, hopefully:

2003 NHL-Carter (1),NHL-Richards (1), NHL-Colin Fraser (3), NHL/AHL/KHL - Ruzicka (3), NHL/AHL - Picard (3), Kozak (3), Romy (4), Tremblay (5), Beauchemin (6), Hostikka (6)

Good in the 1st and 3rd.

2004 AHL barely Belamy (3), Anderson (4), AHL-Laliberte (4), Zarb (5), Pisellini (5), JAIL-Scurko (6), AHL-Cabana (6), AHL- Houle (8), Gawryletz (8), Carter (9), AHL-Grant (9)

Slim pickings.

2005 NHL-Downie (1), NHL/AHL-Bartulis (3), Duchesne (4), Beaulieu (5), Flatters (6), Clackson (7)

Good in the 1st and 3rd.

2006 NHL/WIZARD-Giroux (1), NHL-Nodl (2), AHL-Ratchuk (2), Ran Away-Bodrov (2), AHL-Matsumoto (3), AHL-Lehtivuori (4), Kovar (4), AHL-Rheault (5), Dupont (6), KHL-Popov (7)

Good in the 1st and 2nd.

2007 NHL-JVR (1), AHL-Marshall (2), AHL-Klotz (3), Kempe (5), AHL-Kalinski (6), AHL-Maroon (6), Phillips (7)

Good 1st, but a high pick. Nice borderline players that could have been backend NHLers.

2008 NHL-Sbisa (1), NHL/AHL-Bourdon (3), De Serres (3), NHL-Rinaldo (6), Still like-Eriksson (7)

Good 1st, 3rd, 6th, and 7th.

2009 Morrison (3), Bertilsson (3), Riopel (5), Labrecque (5), NHL-Wellwood (5), Lauridsen (7)

Good pick at 5 and Lauridsen could still turn into something. Otherwise, horrible.

2010 Chaput (3), McGinn (4), Parks (5), Nepotism-Luukko (5), Blidstrand (7), Ranford (7)

Not a lot of hope here.

2011 (guesses here) NHL-Cooter (1), NHL/AHL-Cousins (3), Suellentrop (4), AHL-Noebels (4), Placek (6), AHL-Mathers (7)

Good 1st and 3rd again.

2012 (more guesses) NHL-Laughton (1), AHL-Stolarz (2), NHL-Gostisbehere (3), Larsson (4), AHL-Leier (4), Willcox (5), Vasiliev (7)

Overall: Good in the 1st. Decent picks in the 2nd (missing a few of those). Good in the 3rd. Becomes a bit of a crap shoot in later rounds as it does for the majority of teams.

For fun:

2009 no 1st round picks. Maybe would have targeted someone like Chris Kreider, only picked two spots before the Flyers

2010 no 1 round pick. Maybe someone like Brock Nelson.
