Blues' 1st Round Picks

I was just thinking that with the emergence of Christian Backman, the Blues who are just soooo bad at drafting actually have a very good success rate with 1st round picks.

1995 - Marty Reasoner
Obviously he never developed into what we all wanted him to, but he become a decent #3 center up in Edmonton. That's not great for a 1st round pick but it's far from a bust.

1998 - Christian Backman
Took a while to develop, but clearly is going to be a decent #3 or #4.

1999 - Barret Jackman
2002-03 Calder Trophy Winner.

2000 - Jeff Taffe
Still a little early, but he's doing pretty decently in PHO and is widely considered a top prospect in the league.

2003 - Shawn Belle
Obviously it's WAY too early to judge Belle, but he's got as much potential as all but 4 or 5 players in that entire draft.

I've noticed that Blues main rivals hasn't done better with their 1st round picks...
