Goalies are different because of sheer numbers but the Flyers had Hextall and Wregget. Rumors had one being traded to either Detroit or Vancouver to move up in that draft (Nedved rumors) but neither team bit. Brodeur was taken at 20 but no, I don't think anyone had him positioned as one the game's all-time greats. In fact, he was projected to be picked in the second round more so than first round. I recall one summary of Brodeur was "that he lacks polish." I think Trevor Kidd had a much bigger can't-miss label, too.
