Perfect Draft

Has any team ever had a perfect draft? (minimum 7 picks)

Toronto in 2006 had

Jiri Tlusty 1st
Nikolai Kulemin 2nd
James Reimer 4th
Korbinian Holzer 4th
Viktor Stalberg 6th
Tyler Ruegsegger 6th
Leo Komarov 6th

Although not high end talent, all but Ruegsegger should be in the NHL come next season, so it got me wondering has anyone ever had a perfect draft in recent years?

Funny how the worst player of the bunch turned out to be none other than 1st round bust Jiri Tlusty.

Perfect as in all NHLers, not the most Ideal draft. That wasn't a perfect draft, but its the closest I've seen.

How can you not figure out what the OP is talking about here?

7 picks = 7 NHLers

Not the 7 best players of the draft, that's just impossible.

Tlusty is worse than Holzer, Ruegsegger and Komarov?

Not even close to perfect, but I love Nashvilles 03 draft. 2 all star defencemen, along with 2 more every day NHL d men.

2001 San Jose had every player drafted play atleast a game in the NHL

100- Chris Wideman
130- Mike Hoffman
146- Jeff Costello
160- Corey Cowick

Already 4 players with NHL experience and a lot of NCAA prospects.

The Isles 2009 draft had 6 out of 7 play in the NHL, and the 7th from the 7th round, Anders Lee, is likely to make the bigs also.

The draft preview of THN talks about a draft by the Devils I think it was 1990 where they had 14 picks in 12 rounds and turned 10 into regular NHLers.

Yeah it was 1990. Broduer's draft.

Bruins went 7 for 7 in '79, with one Hall of Famer, and a couple more who had good careers.

Bourque, McCrimmon, Krushelnyski

Only on HF is Tlusty, who is 24, has played in 288 NHL games and just put up a 17G, 19A season (not spectacular, but not terrible), and is a defensively responsible forward who is at a minimum is a top 9 forward....is considered worse than 3 guys who haven't even sniffed the NHL yet (Holzer, Ruegsegger, Komarov), a goalie who hasn't even played 82 games and can't hold a starting job, and a bottom pairing defenseman.

Heck, that "worst" player even out-performed Kulemin this past season.

Way too early to tell for Carolina, but 2010 probably is the only draft that has the potential.

Skinner (1st) and Justin Faulk (2nd) were both solid NHL players at 19.

Mark Alt(2nd) had the potential to be a 4-5-6 defenseman.
Danny Biega (3rd) has really come into his own at Harvard and has become quite the offensive defenseman.
Austin Levi (4th) was thought to be just the token Whaler pick, but looks like he also has a chance to be a 4-5-6 defenseman.
Justin Shugg (4th) seems to be a long shot.
Tyler Stahl (6th) probably won't pan out
Frederik Andersen (7th) had a phenomenal season in the SEL this past season and was probably the top goaltender. Unfortunately, it looks like the Canes might not be the beneficiary as unless they sign him today, he's a free agent.

The Canes also acquired Sanguinetti and Riley Nash by trading picks during this draft.
