Top 5:

1. Shea Weber (49)
2. Patrice Bergeron (45)
3. Corey Perry (28)
4. David Backes (62)
5. Loui Eriksson (33)

Only the first 2 rounds, I wrote it before viewing the other posts, and I see Joe Pavelski in the 7th round. He is second behind Weber IMO.

People are too hung up on ZOMG he was a 9th rounder!!! It's Weber and it's not really remotely close.

Was that Josh Gorges draft year?

Regardless of that Weber was totally the steal of that draft.

In the first round? Without a doubt. Perry was likely the best pick in the draft for value. Kesler/Richards at 23/24 was damn good as well.

Bergeron at 45, Weber at 49, Backes at 62. Weber clearly the best of the three but the other two were fantastic picks as well. Backes in the quintessential powerforward and Bergeron is one of the best two way players in the game. Plus his offensive game was quite good before he went through injury troubles and then Boston turned defensive. There's no telling what he could do on a first line on another team.

MacArthur at 74 is pretty good too. 4 seasons in the NHL and all of them have been above 16 goals. Good for a third rounder. Quincey in the late fourth round was a great steal too.


However no one beast these four names. Pavelski at 205 in the 7th, Byfuglien at 245 in the 8th, Enstrom at 239 also in the 8th and Moulson at 263.

Pavelski has become the swiss army knife of second line centers and shown he can step it up in big games. Enstrom is the steady top line defender, holding down the fort, playing a low-key but effective game. Moulson a 30 goal scorer in every season he's played and has improved his assists in every season. I don't care that he plays with Tavares, a 30 goal guy in the last round of any draft is incredible much less one that does it consistently. Halak at 271 too if he can play like he did last season long term.

And then Byfuglien, my crowned biggest steal of the draft. A top line, puck rushing defender with size that every team covets in the 7th round. Two straight 50 point seasons (where he actually improved his play in the second one) as a dman. The guy is an all star and one of the best offensive defenders in the league. Weber is a close second but 2nd round is still a round that can produce high impact players to me so it's less impressive. Halak

Lots of steals.
Buff, Enstrom, Pavelski...(Given their late position)

Gorges was never drafted. He was signed by the Sharks.

Buff, Pavelski and Enstrom are the top three. Top line/pairing players all of them. Weber is number four imo. Top 2 dman in the league, and a lot would say the best dman in the league. Corry Perry is number five. Anyone getting a Hart winner at 28th is laughing.

Weber's the 2nd best Dmen in the NHL only behind Chara and is the best player drafted in this draft so it's easily Weber.

That first round was can't miss, unless you were the Rangers or St Louis. And is there a better example of Toronto's last miserable decade than them trading out of that 1st round?

Matt Moulson in the sense of a steal being a late round pick (4th or later)

Too bad for the Pens he sort of slipped through the cracks during a regime change in Pittsburgh.

A lot of names mentioned for biggest steal. How about another question? Now that we are years down the road who would be the first 5 players drafted from the 2003 draft.

Whoever they were...the Kings certainly didn't get any of them...

With every pick past Brown (@13)...I was screaming for the entire scouting staff to be fired...

Pretty sure that's the point he was trying to make. He was available in 2003 but wasn't drafted and he became a pretty serviceable dman.

IMO it's Weber, should've been drafted top-3 and went in the second, pretty amazing.

I have to say Pavelski. I still have a hard time considering 1st and 2nd rounders steals. Maybe they were picked later than they should have but teams still burned a first or second rounder on them.

Great draft. It has to be Weber. Backes, Enstrom, Elliott, Halak, Howard, Pavelski, and Moulson are worthy of mentions as well.

Is it possible that the lockout in 2004 helped the development of the 2003 draft class? Trying to be optimistic if there's a lockout this year.
