Every draft seems to have it's moments. Knock these drafts all you want but they produced some very good late rounders in Tomas Kaberle and Henrick Zetterberg, as well as 1st rounders like Sturm, Phillips, Zubrus, Briere, Sedins, Havlat. A fair number of grinder, character players who've etched out careers. It's all relative.
Too much is made out of pre-draft speculation. Last year nobody wanted their 1st rounder. This year, you'd have to be an idiot not to want in this one. Yet last year's doesn't look as bad as projected and who knows how this one will be remembered in 5 years.
