But of those 7 decent picks, only one is on this team. We gave up the other 6 in bad, bad trades. Rask. Boyes. Steen.
1996 - Nobody
1997 - Nobody
1998 - Antropov (Too much expectation to be a 1st line center, was a good 2nd line center)
1999 - Cereda (BUST)
2000 - Boyes (We had no patience with this guy and lost out big time)
2001 - Colaicovo (Good pick, good player, we put too much expectation on him to be a top 2 D)
2002 - Steen (great pick, great player, we put too much expectation on him to be a 1st liner)
2003 - Nobody
2004 - Nobody
2005 - Rask (This is where the 'bandaging' really began to keep our sinking team afloat. Great pick, terrible decisions)
2006 - Tlusty (BUST)
2007 - Nobody
2008 - Schenn (Good pick, we put too much expectation on him to become Chris Pronger)
2009 - Kadri (Good pick, we still put too much expectation on him to be a #1 center when he should develop into a good 2nd line, 50-60 point guy)
2010 - Nobody
Tlusty a BUST?????? The kid is only 24.
He is doing fine in Caro.
Cereda had serious health issues, impossible to judge .
