A.Kostistyn over Carter, dustin Brown, Zach Parise, Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan kesler, Corey Perry...

Chipchura over Zajac, Wolski, Meszaros, MIKE GREEN

David Fischer over Claude Giroux, Berglund, Foligno
There's always going to be mistakes but the same drill can look like,

Subban over Palushaj, Antoine Lafleur, Keven Veilleux, Ruslan Bashkirov, etc...

Pacioretty over Patrick White, Nick Ross, Billy Sweatt, Nick Petrecki,

Price over Gilbert Brule, Jack Skille, Brian Lee

I actually had Fischer, Giroux and Summers as our picks, too bad i was right with the wrong one.

Tinordi moves well, I'd be surprised if it is a problem for him at the NHL level. I don't know what he will do in the NHL, but I'd bet money that he ends up at worst a very solid bottom pairing defensemen that excells on the PK.

good point. Fischer also had some very interesting qualities, tall frame, great skater that can move the puck. It's too bad he didn't work hard enough, he seems to be doing well enough in Germany.

It was after the draft if I recall correctly, so he gets credit from '03 and on.

yes, he's had 27 players make the NHL so far and that number should continue to increase,

here's an older list of Timmins NHL picks, before Galchenyuk and Gallagher made their debuts,

I don't agree that at the time, Galchenyuk was an obvious pick, since there were so many question marks after missing so much time.
