Has a GM ever owned three 1sts before?

And if so which GMs in which years?

Did they use all three picks or trade? and for who?

Washington had three in both 2002 & 2004.

In 2002, they used them on Steve Eminger (12), Alexander Semin (13), and Boyd Gordon (17).

In 2004, they used them on Alexander Ovechkin (1), Jeff Schultz (27), and Mike Green (29).

The Kings had 3 firsts a few years ago and took Dustin Brown, Brian Boyle and Jeff Tambellini.

I know this isn't a hockey team, but the New York Jets had 4 1st rounders the year they took Pennington.

The Pens actually had three in Mario's draft year 1984 when they also drafted Doug Bodger and Roger Belanger. And all three made the team out of their first training camp.

Following is a list of every team who had 3 or more 1st round picks, the year, and the players picked. I don't think I forgot any teams. Interestingly enough, the first time it ever happened is also the only time I can find in professional sports history that a team had the first, second, and third overall picks in the same season. The Canadiens also have the record for most picks in the first round in a draft with 5 in 1974.

1968: Montreal Canadiens - Michel Plasse (1), Roger Belisle (2), Jim Pritchard (3)
1969: Boston Bruins - Don Tannahill (3), Frank Spring (4), Ivan Boldirev (11)
1970: Boston Bruins - Reggie Leach (3), Rick MacLeish (4), Ron Plumb (9), Bob Stewart (13)
1971: Montreal Canadiens - Guy Lafleur (1), Chuck Arnason (7), Murray Wilson (11)
1972: Montreal Canadiens - Steve Shutt (4), Michel Larocque (6), Dave Gardner (8)
1973: Toronto Maple Leafs - Lanny McDonald (4), Bob Neely (10), Ian Turnbull (15)
1974: Montreal Canadiens - Cam Connor (5), Doug Risebrough (7), Rick Chartraw (10), Mario Tremblay (12), Gord McTavish (15)
1976: Montreal Canadiens - Peter Lee (12), Rod Schutt (13), Bruce Baker (18)
1978: Philadelphia Flyers - Behn Wilson (6), Ken Linseman (7), Dan Lucas (14)
1981: Montreal Canadiens - Mark Hunter (7), Gilbert Delorme (18), Jan Ingman (19)
1982: Buffalo Sabres - Phil Housley (6), Paul Cyr (9), Dave Andreychuk (16)
1983: Buffalo Sabres - Tom Barrasso (5), Norman Lacombe (10), Adam Creighton (11)
1984: Pittsburgh Penguins - Mario Lemieux (1), Doug Bodger (9), Roger Belanger (16)
1989: Toronto Maple Leafs - Scott Thornton (3), Rob Pearson (12), Steve Bancroft (21)
1998: Colorado Avalanche - Alex Tanguay (12), Martin Skoula (17), Robyn Regehr (19), Scott Parker (20)
1999: New York Islanders - Tim Connolly (5), Taylor Pyatt (8), Branislav Mezei (10), Kristian Kudroc (28)
2002: Washington Capitals - Steve Eminger (12), Alexander Semin (13), Boyd Gordon (17)
2003: Los Angeles Kings - Dustin Brown (13), Brian Boyle (26), Jeff Tambellini (27)
2004: Washington Capitals - Alexander Ovechkin (1), Jeff Schultz (27), Mike Green (29)

All from the same junior team. The last two picks were from the Ken Wregget trade. The Leafs told the media how having 3 1st rounders would be the beginning of some grand rebuilding process. Didn't work.

1970: Boston Bruins - Reggie Leach (3), Rick MacLeish (4)
Had the Bruins kept those two guys, could it have been enough to push them over Montreal in `78 or `79?

Nobody appreciates those picks more than Flyers fans.

In 1969 they passed on Bobby Clarke three separate time.

MacLeish led the Flyers in playoff scoring during both Stanley Cup seasons, and scored the only goal in the Cup clinching victory over the Bruins in 1974.

Leach was key in the 2nd Cup win and Conn Smythe winner in 1976.

The scary thing is, about 3 teams have 3 picks in the 1st for this upcoming draft. If no moves are made, this'll be the first time more than one team had3+ 1sts.

Despite Parker, I still look at Colorado's draft effort in '98 as a great example of great drafting, with multiple picks.

Well, that '74 draft netted a coach AND a GM. Pretty good work looking WAY into the future there.

Can't say the Habs didn't milk every ounce of of the Tremblay pick either.

Who did Philly trade to get MacLeish and Leach? Whomever it was, that was a bonafide steal.

That's just brutal.

You've got 3 picks in the top 10 and you end up with not one superstar.

I know 1999 was one of the worst draft years ever but damn that really sucks to have 3 picks in the first 10 and 4 picks in the first round and end up with pretty much nothing.

That was 7 years ago and I dont think a single one of those guys still plays for the Islanders.
