    Redo the 2000 1st round draft 6 years later..base it on what that team needed at the time or what would have been a better pick looking back now. All players drafted in 2000 are eligible to make the 1st round. So where does Lundqvist go ;)

    Well I don't think the top 3 would change, at least based on needs, unless you are ready to write off Dipietro.

    Some going higher... Frolov, Stoll, Vermette, Tellqvist, Visnovski... who takes Danton? :)

    I did this pretty fast so i could have missed some guys....its just a rough top 30...it is a pretty ****** draft...lots of Busts in the 1st round in the teens and not much late.

    Justin Williams is FAR too low on that mock right there.

    2005-06 Carolina Hurricanes NHL 67 24 39 63 54

    Those are his numbers this year. That puts him pretty easily in the Top 10, IMO.

    good job, but I'd be very very surprised if an overager like Visnovsky still went where you put him. Otherwise the list looks fairly good, only things i'd change is to move Boyes, Williams, and Martin all up.

    He's been overshadowed by Erik Cole, Eric Staal, Cory Stillman, and Ray Whitney to an extent because they're all around a point per game as well.

    Williams has really rounded out his play quite well though, and deserves to be mentioned with the elite two way forwards in the league right now.

    2000 was actually a great draft for the most part. Sure, there weren't any superstars, but a lot of solid players came from the first round, as well as good amount of busts, but that had to do with the WHA falling apart. Notice how the busts all came from the WHA :D

    I think Heatley and Gaborik could probably be considered superstars, maybe Lunqvist if he keeps playing like he has been. They certainly aren't Crosby or Ovechkin types, but it's unfair to judge drafts based on whether or not there was a Crosby or Ovechkin available.

    Absolutely. And to take your point a step further, Crosby and Ovechkin aren't superstars yet either, at least not outside of the HF boards. It takes a few years of experience to reach that status, and guys like Heatley and Gaborik seem to be pretty much on schedule - just starting to break into that level. Crosby and Ovechkin are still a couple or a few years away.

    I'll speak for only the Sens on that list; Vermette no, but I take Volchenkov before Boyes with ease.

    Good list. I'd move Klesla higher than Liles for sure. Liles is still pretty weak in his own zone, IMO. Klesla's top-end potential is still greater. Liles is also a year and a half older than Klesla.

    Other than that, I really have no complaints with it.

    if Brent Krahn makes the list, then Tellqvist is more valuble than Krahn.. has Krahn played a single game in the NHL yet?
     
  20. Horrible draft for the Bruins. Jonsson won't come over (at least they'll get a second round pick as compensation when he doesn't sign by the deadline), and Hilbert busted in Boston.

    Hey, at least we traded for Boyes!

    Yes, Hartnell is a better player.

    If your nick wasn't enough of a giveaway that you're a canes fan:P

    He definantly should be top 10, but a potential superstar goalie should have more worth then a 2nd liner.

    How many second liners are scoring a point per game this year? He's 35th in the league in scoring, which means that roughly one player per team in the NHL has more points than he does. Not even to mention his defensive prowess.

    I'm not saying he's a superstar, but he's certainly proven this year that's he is a top flight first line player.

    I need to see more out of DiPietro than potential to give him the nod over a forward that is scoring at a clip like Justin Williams is scoring at this year.
