With the new season we've hit the 3 year threshold on navel gazing prospects. How does your team's 2003 draft rank? Colorado Avs No 1st round pick from the Blake trade (good investment) 2/63 David Liffiton D: Traded to the Rangers in the Barnay deal. Jury is still out on his ability. Had an ECHL stint but looks like a decent contributor at Hartford could still have an NHL career. 4/131 David Svagrovsky RW: In the minors. Loks like he'll spend his career there. Player picked for size (6-3) his game may not translate to the new NHL. 5/146 Mark McCutcheon C: This pick had dud written all over it for three years. Now as a senior in Cornell he's had an early run. Good bet to at least get a pro contract. 5/163 Brad Richardson C: Great pick. Made the avs last year and has performed well this season. 2 way player with speed for new NHL and a nifty wrister. Forces turnovers. Could be a top 6 talent. 7/204 Linus Videll LW: Another size queen project (6-3 214). Hasn't stuck in the SEL so NHL career is doubtful. The new rights situation on Euros makes the pick a bigger write off. 7/225 Brett Hemingway W: In his senior year at UNH, college scoring star. Slight frame could be a hinderence. Could go either way on getting a contract. 8/257 Darryl Yacboski D: Rentered and went undrafted in '05. Washed out of the Dub last year. 9/288 David Jones RW: Generating some excitement as a prospect. In his junior year at Dartmouth and off to a quick start after a breakout season as a soph. Good power forward/checking line credentials size, speed and skill. has a couple more years in college to ripen. So a decent draft for being without a 1st. Hit one home run (Richardson) and still have a few prospects.
