Faloon had a great offensive gift, but the problem was that SJ brought him up right away and did not allow him to spend a year in the minor in order to work on his defensive side of his game. Drew Remenda always said that his greatest regret when he was an assistant coach with the Sharks is that they rushed Faloon to the big club and that really hurt his chances to be a truly great player.

Pat Peake was to be a terrific NHL 1st line player. Probably as a right winger that scored around 35 goals a year. He played his heart out but got himself injured in a host of ways. It was a good draft pick that didn't work out for the team or the player. His career pretty well ended when he tried to beat a D man to an icing and turned his foot into macaroni. I have a lot of respect for that kid and we're all sorry it didn't work out for him in D.C.

The injuries to Lindros and Peak never happened. I seen that some lists include Palffy, so if he was on this list, id put him after Forsberg, without a doubt ahead of Naslund.

ya man for sure about peake, i was doing up my list as you posted that and exactly, I was a pens fan back in the day and that Peake was sure impressive. I remember when his career pretty much ended. Too bad, he would have been a good one.

Falloon still finished third in scoring this season in the North Central Senior Hockey League.

In fact, if the Foxwarren Falcons edge out the Roblin Northstars for the title this year I'd put Falloon ahead of Lachance.

He is much more of a product of Jagr/Lemieux, and as great as a compliment as he was to them, we can now certainly tell that he was the weak link of the line.
If I remember correctly, Kovalev only spend one year with Jagr and Lemieux on the same team, and that was 2000/01. He was part of the second line together with Straka and Lang, and those three played the powerplays with Jagr and Lemieux, but apart from that he never really played with them.

Jagr and Lemieux usually played with guys like Jan Hrdina or later on Kevin Stevens.

Thanks for the participation, everyone! (Even if some, ahem, started throwing guys like Palffy and Zhitnik into the mix when they weren't eligible for this little game ).

Some interesting stories to note:

- Top 4, with a bit of variation, seems to have a consensus in Forsberg, Niedermayer, Lindros and Näslund.

- In most drafts, Quebec ends up with Forsberg anyway, and as several have noted, this may have actually hurt the team what with the opportunity cost of trading Lindros

- a number of drafts have Rolston ending up on Vancouver -- he's a Canuck-killer, ironically -- and a number have Kovalev ending up on Vancouver, where he was incessantly rumored to be going while Petr Nedved sat out in 1993-94

- a couple of the drafts have the Isles' pick, Lachance, going to the Rangers, which is just kinda funny for the NYI/NYR thing.
