Here's an article from Bill Meltzler about drafting defensemen in the first round.
I did a list of NHL all-stars since 2000 and added EOS first and second team all-stars and recent Norris finalist together to see where they were drafted. (Note there are a few dubious names included such as Modry and Buzek who shockingly actually were all-stars).

Name -------- Round Selection
Jovanovski 1 1
Hamrlik 1 1
Pronger 1 2
Redden 1 2
Doughty 1 2
Bouwmeester 1 3
Niedermayer 1 3
Pietrangelo 1 4
Stevens 1 5
Brewer 1 5
Housley 1 6
Komisarek 1 7
Bourque 1 8
Hatcher 1 8
Leetch 1 9
Gonchar 1 14
MacInnis 1 15
Numminen 2 29
Ozolinsh 2 30
Svoboda 2 35
Niinimaa 2 36
Desjardin 2 38
Chelios 2 40
McCabe 2 40
P.K.Subban 2 43
Schneider 3 44
Norstrom 2 48
Poti 3 59
Buzek 3 63
Blake 4 70
Souray 3 71
Zhitnik 4 81
Zubov 5 85
Ragnarsson 5 99
Aucoin 5 117
Visnovsky 4 118
Yushkevich 6 122
Markov 6 162
Robidas 7 164
Kubina 7 179
Modry 9 179
Kuba 8 192
Kaberle 8 204
Streit 9 262
Boynton 1 9 - 21 (drafted twice)
Rafalski Not Drafted
Boyle Not Drafted

Summary:

9th overall or higher -- 32%

Other 1rst Rnd -- 6%

2nd Rnd -- 17%
3rd Rnd + -- 40% (includes two undrafted)

Basically unless you are drafting in the top 10, it is a crap shoot.
