Gatorade, do you realise Chris Phillips was a #1 overall pick?

Lidstrom was taken in the 3rd round.

Bondra was taken in the 8th round.

Draft position is not everything.

High draft position tends to mean that at some point the player was thought of very highly compared to his peers.

I like how BUrke seems to collect former 1st round picks. I think it is a good idea. But I am not ragging on a guy because he was a 1st round pick and plays on the 3rd or 4th line.
