Burke wanted his franchise defenseman in Chris Pronger, so he moved up to the second overall pick, while San Jose traded down to get big bodied Viktor Kozlov, who was projected as an Evgeni Malkin type prospect at the time: the guy was a 6'4" center who was drawing comparisons to Mario Lemieux.
ah, the era of the tall center prospect... kozlov, jason bonsignore, vinnie lecavalier, all guys with no business being compared to mario. i swear i even heard/read mario comparisons with chad kilger.
