If we are to look solely at the draft itself and not the players' careers in retrospect, I'd say 2002 is hard to top. Five first round picks, two in top five. However, only a small handful of the 25 Finns picked that year ended up making a substantial career in the NHL.
If we are to look at high as possible success ratio, I'd say it was 1993. Only eight Finns picked, but out of those five managed to make at least some ripples in the league.
So, will this be the best draft event ever for Finland? Doubt it. But if we are to look at the amount of possible success stories... I guess time will tell.
