The Avs were pretty good drafters themselves in the 90s with picks like Regehr, Tanguay, Parrish, Deadmarsh, Pahlsson, Drury, Hejduk, Tim Thomas! Brent Johnson, Thibault, Fernandez, Karpovtsev, Kovalenko, etc. not to mention a host of guys who looked like big time prospects whom they parlayed into real good assets.
