With Stalberg and Tlusty also taking regular NHL shifts this was a great haul by JFJ and Co. that year. Six of seven of his selections are now regular NHLers.

Only two in 2007:

4/99 - Matt Frattin

7/194 - Carl Gunnarsson


But that is no small contribution to the club's present make-up.

Burke was certainly right in giving credit where credit was due. And it's a testament to just how important patience and development can be.
No way am I going to go along with this. This is a decent amount of average NHLers. which one is going to the Hall of Fame or even good enough to be an all star?

Why don't we just pay tribute to every GM ever for drafting a bunch of average players?
