Patrick Stefan, Alexandre Daigle, Joe Murphy, Bryan Berard?
Three of those players played over 600 games and they're the worst of the bunch.
DiPietro? Maybe.. but that's not really a fair assessment all things considered. He was a good goalie until the injuries hit and you can't predict that.
Chris Phillips isn't your typical 1st overall pick, neither is Roman Hamrlik.. but both guys had amazing NHL careers. Hamrlik played the 34th most games in NHL history and has an Olympic gold medal. Phillips has played the 140th most games, and has a chance to maybe reach the Top-50.
