SAD Statistic...

The Toronto Maple Leafs 9 draft picks from the 1999 Draft have played a combined total of 3 NHL games in their careers.

This has to be some kind of record.

Can anyone else find record of a team doing as terrible as this in one draft year?

1996 Bruins' draft was just as bad.

Jonathan Aitken(#8 overall!) played three games in a Bruins sweater. He was able to log 41 with the horrible 2004 Blackhawks.

Trent Whitfield is the only other guy out of that draft with NHL experience, but none of it was for the Bruins, he got released and wound up with Washington, the Rangers, and now St. Louis(none of them were good teams at all)

1999 Habs draft with 1 NHL game for Terry Carkner and not even with us but for San Jose 'cause he was released by us.

Again, we beat you...

With an avatar like that surely you thought of the "Max Power" episode when you saw the name at 143....

That number (3 NHL games) would have been enhanced greatly if Luca Cereda didn't have the heart ailment.

While Cereda was no Martin Havlat (sigh) he would have been a solid NHL player (I still maintain that he could have been better than Brad Boyes) had he not had his career derailed by his health problems.

Otherwise 1999 was a dismal year for the Leafs and most teams.

Brendl, Finely, Beech, Mezei, Shvidki, Rita, Jillson, Kelman, Safranov, Heisten, Cereda, Ouellet, Kulsehov, Ahonen, Kudroc were picked in the first round.

Wow, that is awful. I'd love to read to post-draft report to see what the "experts" thought.

Plus the year before that, the Oilers 1st and 2nd round picks didn`t make it either.

To me, this is the worst result imaginable. Having bad drafts in 1996 and 1999 is bad enough. But those were terrible draft years. If you had a bad draft in 1996 or 1999, well, get in line.

Having a bad draft in 1990 is completely different. This was one of the best drafts of the past 20 years. (Right up there with 1987 and 1993. Jury is still out on 2003, but it's showing a lot of upside). When there's that much talent out there, and team's are drafting two or three quality prospects, and you get 0 games, not only do you hurt yourself, but you but your system considerably behind everyone else.

As a Canuck fan, the selections of Jason Herter in 1989, Libor Polasek in 1992 and Josh Holden in 1996 are not the ones that disappoint me the most. Those were players who were in weak draft years, and in the cases of Herter and Holden, they were widely considered the best players available at that time. The one that always irks me is picking Shawn Antoski in 1990 and Mike Wilson in 1993. In strong draft years, you can't afford to screw it up.

Not really fair though. Because we traded our first round pick in '99 for Trevor Linden. So, we did get something

True, knew that but the thread was more oriented in draft picks being chosen than anything else.

It's funny you mention that, because that was the first thing I thought of. I started singing the Max Power theme song to myself.

Max Power,
he's the man who's name you'd love to touch!
But you mustn't touch!
His name sounds good in your ear,
but when you say it, you mustn't fear!
'Cause his name can be said by anyone!
