Contrary to popular belief, Paul Holmgren drafts well

The problem I have with this analysis is that it uses # of games played in the NHL. The Flyers by their own admission take forwards over defenseman early (though they didn't this year) because they are easier to get a read on.
If you really want to make a more meaningful analysis, add in average draft position by round, break it down games played by draft round, add some kind of impact figure like points/draft pick and TOI/draft pick and I'm sure there are other categories that could be added. Otherwise, under your analysis, drafting JvR at #2 with his 244 GP is better than drafting PK Subban at #43 with his 202 GP.
Does Holmgren draft well? Maybe, but this analysis didn't prove that.
