Here is the top 10 in the last few drafts:

2000: I rather have Leopold over Klesla, Jonsson, Alexeev, Krahn and Yakubov for sure. Possibly even over Hartnell and Torres.

1 NY Islanders Rick DiPietro
2 Atlanta Dany Heatley
3 Minnesota Marian Gaborik
4 Columbus Rostislav Klesla
5 NY Islanders Raffi Torres
6 Nashville Scott Hartnell
7 Boston Lars Jonsson
8 Tampa Bay Nikita Alexeev
9 Calgary Brent Krahn
10 Chicago Mikhail Yakubov

2001: I rather have Leopold over Svitov, Weiss, Chistov, Koivu, Komisarek, Leclaire and Blackburn

1 Atlanta Ilya Kovalchuk
2 Ottawa Jason Spezza
3 Tampa Bay Alexandr Svitov
4 Florida Stephen Weiss
5 Anaheim Stanislav Chistov
6 Minnesota Mikko Koivu
7 Mtl. Canadiens Mike Komisarek
8 Columbus Pascal Leclaire
9 Chicago Tuomo Ruutu
10 NY Rangers Dan Blackburn

2002: I rather have Leopold than Upshall, Taticek and Nystrom for sure...

1 Columbus Rick Nash
2 Atlanta Kari Lehtonen
3 Florida Jay Bouwmeester
4 Philadelphia Joni Pitkanen
5 Pittsburgh Ryan Whitney
6 Nashville Scott Upshall
7 Anaheim Joffrey Lupul
8 Minnesota Pierre-Marc Bouchard
9 Florida Petr Taticek
10 Calgary Eric Nystrom

As you can see top 10 pick is way overrated on this board.
