Hard to say what lists Forsberg was second overall on (other than central scouting Euro list) because he went 11th. We know he was not second on at least nine teams.
The last 12 11th overall picks:
2000 - Pavel Vorobiev - BUST
2001 - Fredrik Sjostrom - BUST
2002 - Keith Ballard - NHL
2003 - Jeff Carter - STAR
2004 - Lauri Tukonen - BUST
2005 - Anze Kopitar - STAR
2006 - Jonathan Bernier - NHL
2007 - Brandon Sutter - NHL
2008 - Kyle Beach - Looking BUST-y
2009 - Ryan Ellis - NHL
2010 - Jack Campbell - PROSPECT
2011 - Duncan Siemens - PROSPECT
I'd say the average is a second liner or second pairing D.
And the average second rounder doesn't make the NHL. So what? And Raymond is an upcoming UFA and Ballard uses up a lot of valuable cap space.
Would you trade Kassian for say, Macarthur, Komisarek and a 2nd?
(Ballard > Komi but Forsberg > Kassian)
