Imagine if the 2006 draft had involved falling back to take the best defenseman available, what with D being a major organizational weakness at the time. The next 10 defensemen taken (all in the 1st or early 2nd round) were Ty Wishart, Mark Mitera, David Fischer, Bobby Sanguinetti, Denis Persson, Ivan Vishnevskiy, Chris Summers, Matt Corrente (the preceding were all in the 1st round), Carl Sneep, and Yuri Alexandrov. Every one of those guys was taken in the top-37.
