Simply put, we would of done better by throwing darts at a board and picking out names that way.

Oh......and the 2003 draft is clearly better than the 80' draft, no comparison there

A million things wouldve been different had we chosen another player.

Had we drafted Getzlaf, maybe we wouldnt sign Gomez, meaning no McDonagh, and no Richards. It likely means prospects of lesser value than MDZ and Kreider.

Also, everyone assumes we wouldve picked Parise or Getzlaf, but how do you know it wouldnt have been Brian Boyle? There were far more teams choosing guys like Boyle than guys like Getzlaf. Why assume that every draft we are the ones to pick the best player?
