Re-do 2000 Draft, 9th overall

HF is currently during evaluations of the 2000 draft for each NHL team because it has been five years since the draft. It seems like the right time for us to re-do the 2000 draft here as well.

Let me know who to add.

1. Dany Heatley 60 of 71 votes (84.51%)
2. Marian Gaborik 59 of 74 votes (79.73%)
3. Alexander Frolov 45 of 89 votes (50.56%)
4. Rick DiPietro 54 of 87 votes (62.07%)
5. Scott Hartnell 34 of 76 votes (44.74%)
6. Niklas Kronwall 27 of 82 votes (32.93%)
7. Rostislav Klesla 28 of 71 votes (39.44%)
8. Justin Williams 22 of 80 votes (27.50%)

Henrik Lundqvist was added.

Kolanos/Krahn/Vorobiev/Hossa/Boyes were the other suggestions.

Paul Martin. Add Krys Kolanos.

As stated before, we didn't get to watch the class of 2000 develop this year. Guys like Volchenkov, Martin, Kronwall, Sutherby and many others played in minor pro this year. Thus, it's harder to evaluate these kids than it normally would be five years after a draft, which, IMO, is the logical time to start with redrafts.

2003 is a very special class. Maybe the deepest since those superstar-laden drafts from 1979 to 1984, and certainly it has the potential to be the best since 1993. But we'll see how those talented young players develop. 1997 was expected to be one of the best ever, but only 10 or 12 players have developed into front-line players. Many more underachieved or flopped.

Exactly! That's why I think Z40's top 100 or whatever it's called is a little iffy.

I'm not so concerned about the top 100. (Although it is hard to compare NHLers vs. prospects). As I've stated many times before, it's those re-drafts of 2003 and 2004 that I draw the line at. Wake me five years after the draft.

Oh, and for those of you complaining about the level of the 2000 draft, wait four years until we're re-evaluating the giant, flaming, piece of crap on a stick that is the 2004 draft. Ovechkin, Malkin, Barker and Olesz are the only skaters who I view as future top line forwards/No. 1 NHL defencemen. Most of the first round of that class will be marginal NHLers or busts.

At least 2000 gave us current stars Heatley and Gaborik, a future star goalie (DiPietro), a future No. 1 LW (Frolov), potentially the best leader drafted in the past 10 to 15 years (Hartnell), a future Selke winner (Sutherby) and some defencemen who I think can be really, really good. (Kronwall, Volchenkov, Martin, Schultz, Klesla and Liles, plus Visnovsky, who's been good as an "older rookie.")

No love for Tukonen? and there are a few other players in 2004 drafted who will surprise people i think - I believe Frolov is the Selke winner not Sutherby

I think Tukonen will develop into a solid, second line power forward. Very good player, but not a front line guy. Same with Andrew Ladd.

I like Frolov a lot. As I said in an earlier vote for this survey, I thought in 2000 that he was the one Russian from that class of 1982s who had a good chance of reaching his upside. (The rest were too boom-or-bust for my liking). I see him as a solid two-way LW who will one day be one of the best at his position. But Brian Sutherby is an incredible defensive player, one of the best that I've seen picked in recent years.
