I've always felt that while the 2003 draft was very strong, the across-the-board success of these players can be attributed to the 2004/05 lockout, and having them stay in the minors an extra season, playing big game minutes.

I doubt Kesler puts up 40 goals in the NHL without putting up 30G as a rookie in 04 in the AHL.

Agreed. Shows the benefits of developing one's skills and strength before being rushed to the big show.

Too many players get rushed and don't develop the way that they should.

Very much agreed.

It's why I don't understand the people insisting Jensen play in the NHL next season. Let him try and dominate the OHL next season.

I don't think any prospect in the history of the game has ever been hurt by spending too much time in either the CHL or AHL honing their game. I think there are plenty of examples of young guys who were rushed to the NHL and never met the expectations

Yeah, the whole "stagnating" argument is pretty weak in my books. I guess maybe a player or two might have lost interest in pushing for a place in the bigs after languishing in the AHL for a couple of years... but I think that was more of a case of finally reading the writing on the wall.

I may be in the minority here but I believe that the Oilers might be hurting RNH's development by playing him this year. Obviously, he has the skill to excel in the NHL, but physically, it seems to be another matter. He's been injured twice, already... and all it will take is a Kronwall type hit to break him for good.

One of the benefits of being a top team (and Detroit is a good example) is that you don't have to rush your guys. You may get lower round picks, but you can take your time to train them into NHL caliber players.

I agree completely. Not only would it have been better for RNH as a player, it would have been a better move for the Oilers, who could have avoided burning a year on his ELC on a last place team. Same goes for Taylor Hall. Both should have spent an extra year in junior. Typically short sighted, bush league management from the Oilers.

I cannot imagine any logical argument for Hall playing another year of Junior.


RNH I can see the argument, but not Hall. There is not one possible thing another year of obliterating the OHL would have taught him after doing it twice. It would be like sending Tavares/Stamkos back.

Taylor Matson, you're our only hope at this point to redeem that 07 draft. Save us!

Cant really hate a draft that ended up getting us Ehrhoff. And Pahlsson has been pretty good too.

Although it could have been Perron.

Awful draft but Gillis salvaged it in the end.
