There are barely more than a couple guys in each draft that are sure things. If you can get a 10-year career player or better in the first round after the top 3, in practically any role, you did a good job.

Go back and look at the top 10 players drafted over the last 20 years. Not a whole lot of franchise players in the group of 140 (after the top 3 in each draft), but a lot of serviceable NHLers.
