Exactly. The only players from that entire draft that have really distinguished themselves thus far are Havlat (26th overall), Comrie(91st), and Jackman(17th). It's incredible to have so few players playing at a high level almost five years after being drafted. The Sedin twins are arguably the best offensive players taken in the first round that year after Havlat. By comparison the first round from a year later has already yielded guys like Heatley, Gaborik, Hartnell, Torres, Frolov, and Justin Williams and they've had a year less development.

As for value, Im not really sure. I wouldnt give a top 5 pick in a different draft for either of them, but they still hold alot of value. They are solid youngsters and will continue to get better but Im just not sure they're up to carrying a scoring line at this point.
