I think you're very much overstating the impact any lockout would have on any draft class.

Besides, shouldn't the draft classes of 2002 and 2004 have benefited just as much if not more (in the case of the 2002 class)?

2003 was full of great players... and great players will be great either way. It's not like we're talking about turning a Patrick O'Sullivan into a Ryan Getzlaf here... Oh wait... O'Sullivan was part of that 2003 draft as well, and he even had MORE time in the AHL than many of those great players and he still turned out like crap.

Sorry... you're not going to sell me on the BS. Like I said... ESPECIALLY when 99% of our affected prospects were ending up in Houston ANYWAY!
