Weakest draft class in years? That's not what I've heard.

I thought this draft class was deeper then last year's? And while not having an "Ovechkin, Crosby, Malkin or Johnson" type player, the 1st round is supposed to be filled with guys who would normally go 5-15 in other drafts. IMO that's not a "weak draft class", it just lacks a top end guy like in previous years.

Voracek, Ellerby, Couture, Petrecki, Gagner, Kane, Backlund, Gillies, Alzner, Esposito, Katic, Repik, Sutter, Bashkirov, Hamill and Moller, among others, all seem to be good prospects.

I know the 2003 draft may be the deepest of all time, and the 2001 draft was fairly deep. The 2002 draft, while considered weak at the time, ended up being pretty deep (the 1st round anyways). Imo, the 07 draft seems deeper then the 04 and 05 drafts. But I'm not a scout
