It's been 15 years. We have to find a way to draft offense.
I understand your point, to an extent (Lucic was projected as a first round pick and went high in the second, Kopitar was seen as a top 5 pick that fell to 10 due to his unconventional country of origin--Poile also said a couple months after that draft that Kopitar was a player they liked and tried to trade up to pick, but LA took him a little higher than they expected)
