    This was the first draft I ever watched. I remember being quite excited when the Devils snatched up Sykora. Interesting quotes should come from:

    - Edmonton's braintrust for picking Steve Kelly
    - Dallas' comments on picking Jarome Iginla
    - San Jose's on picking project Teemu Riihijarvi

    9 years later and only 5 guys are on the team that drafted them (Doan, McKee, Biron, Gauthier, Morozov).

    Bob says Aki Berg is more offensive than Wade Redden.

    LOL - I know it's easy to laugh about that now.

    I'd be interested in hearing what comments (if any) they have to make about Morozov.

    It never showed Morozov being picked, although they thought Toronto might pick him. I think it stopped showing picks after Sykora.

    Some interesting stuff.

    McKenzie and co. were talking abou how big and strong Dvorak was. He is not a wimp, but not what I would consider a big strong player. Maybe he was expected to add more height o bulk or was strong for his age at the time.

    5 of the top 11 players were from Alberta (Redden, Doan, McKee, Langkow, Iginla) and 6 were from the WHL (Kelly). Actually this makes it even a little more surprising that the Oil took Kelly as they ususally have an attraction to local boys.........maybe less so back then though, well he had speed and that is another thing they have always been crazy about.

    Nobody was thanking the Oilers for hosting like it seemed everybody did last year. Did teams not do this back then or were the Oilers just bad hosts :)

    The Doan chants were not as loud and numerous as I remembered.

    How long after the draft were Berard and Redden dealt for each other? This has probably been covered before but do you think that Redden was Ottawas man from the start, but they thought they might have had a deal in place which eventually fell through? Therefore the deal was made to give both Ott and the Isles their number 1 guy.

    When Dvorak was drated, they were saying that the Kings were really high on him and were even considering taking him 3rd overall..............would have been better off taking the leap of faith hey, well hindsight is 20/20 so its easy for me to say that. Still kind of makes LA fans have to kick themselves a bit, had they gone off the map like they considered they would have been ahead then with the safe pick.

    Dvorak was seen as a potential power forward. He has the size and wheels to do it, but the weight never really came and the mean streak was non-existent.

    He's carved out a nice NHL career but with the exception of two years in NY, the end result has never been a reflection of the talent.

    ok my bad. I knew he was from Lloyminister. I thought he was from the Alberta side, but I guess it was the Sask side. My sister was visiting so I was only half watching until pick 7.

    6'2, he has ok size but is not huge. I dunno, I look at him and he has fair size, but just does not have the frame of a Power forward IMO. That is why I was surprised at how much they focused on his physical potentiel.

    As I recall Berarb refused to play for the Senators, who were pretty poor at the time, so he was dealt to the Islanders for Redden. I think the Snes got a pick as well, but I'm not sure. In his first season Berard won the Calder.

    Probably a result of distortion of information along the way. You know, you start by saying something and it ends up something totally different when you've passed it along a few times.

    In the case of Dvorak, he was especially perceived as a skilled player with very good athleticism. Which is true. He is really a natural physically.

    I think along the way this "physical edge" was somehow turned into "physical presence" and that is not really what he is.

    Ryan looked good

    As a Hab's fan, listening to the way they described Terry Ryan, I really can't say we should be disapointed in the pick. He looked good on paper and he was exactly what the Hab's needed. Too bad he didn't pan out. I still don't think the Habs made a bad choice...I think maybe Ryan made some bad choices.

    Same thing is happening this year because some so-called draft sources (you know who you are) are misinforming the public by calling the likes of Lauri Tukonen and Drew Stafford power forwards...
    They are NOT power forwards - in fact, it doesn't look like there is a single one in the draft.

    It was a 3 way deal:
    Isles got: Berard, Straka, and Belanger
    Sens got: Redden, Rhodes
    Leafs got: Muller and Beaupre

    Damian Rhodes and Ken Belanger traded to NY Islanders by Toronto for future considerations (Kirk Muller and Don Beaupre, January 23, 1996), January 23, 1996. Damian Rhodes and Wade Redden traded to Ottawa by NY Islanders with Wade Redden for Don Beaupre, Martin Straka and Bryan Berard, January 23, 1996.
