Here are our other picks:

- 1st: Terry Ryan (8 NHL games, retired in 2003)
- 2nd: no pick
- 3rd: Miroslav Guren (36 NHL games, is playing in Italy after a 2-year retirement)
- 3rd: Martin Hohenberger (0 NHL games, retired 4 years ago)
- 4th: Jonathan Delisle (1 NHL games, retired 6 years ago)
- 5th: Niklas Anger (0 NHL games, retired)
- 6th: Boyd Olson (0 NHL games, retired in 2000)
- 7th: Stephane Robidas (great pick)
- 8th: Greg Hart (0 NHL games, retired the year after we drafted him)
- 9th: Eric Houde (30 NHL games, retired after playing in LNAH)

With Robidas: 874 NHL games divided in 9 players.
Without Robidas: 75 NHL games divided in 8 players.

Now I know the draft is not an exact science and you never know, but what an awful, awful draft. Most of these guys were not even good enough to have a journeyman career in Europe or lower leagues.
Just to make the pain worst

With the 1st round pick we could have had

Jarome Iginla
Petr Sykora
Radek Dvorak
