    Is it just me or have the Vancouver Canucks done the worst job at drafting in the last 10 years!

    Since Ohlund was selected in the first round in 1994, there have been a total of 18 players that have played for the team. Of those, only 6 remain (7 if you count Chubarov playing in Russia this year). The 2000 draft is looking worse every day (Nathan Smith was our first round pick and he will probably never play in the NHL).

    1995 - Chris McAllister, Larry Courville, Peter Schaefer, Brent Sopel
    1996 - Josh Holden, Zenith Komarniski, Lubomir Vaic
    1997 - Brad Ference, Harold Druken, Matt Cooke
    1998 - Bryan Allen, Artem Chubarov, Jarkko Ruuttu
    1999 - Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin
    2000 - Brandon Reid
    2001 - Fedor Fedorov
    2002 - None
    2003 - Ryan Kesler

    The Canucks entire first line, the starting and backup goalie and 4 of the top 5 d-men came via trades. Imagine where the Canucks would be if they didn't trade so well.

    If the Sedins, Bryan Allen and Kesler develop as expected, then this post will be wrong but how is the drafting record of other teams?

    Now that I look at a few other teams, I see Chicago has done even worse.

    The '84-'99 Oilers deserve a nod. The worst being:

    Whats your beef with Chicago? You seem to knock them a lot.

    I would take Ruutu, Bell, Calder, and a few others over anyone the Canucks have drafted the last decade. The sisters are nothing to be proud of.

    Part of the problem with that list is it doesn't count players traded away. If it is straight drafting ability you want to measure then the players should be able to play on any team. Take PROSPECTX, if he is traded then cracks TEAMY, then the team drafted him deserves the credit for drafting an NHL player.

    Look at what the Leafs have done. I posted this over at DMD.
    I was looking at our first round draft picks since 1993 and found some disturbing things... :p
    1993
    Maple Leafs Select RW Landon Wilson at 19th overall. He would never play a single game for us.
    Saku Koivu taken 21st overall.
    Todd Bertuzzi taken 23rd overall.
    1994
    Maple Leafs select G Eric Fichaud at 16th overall. He would play 95 games in the NHL and would never play a single game for the Leafs.
    Nobody significant was taken after him in the first round. It was a pretty weak draft year I think.
    1995
    Maple Leafs Select D Jeff Ware at 15th overall. He would play 21 games in the NHL and 15 of those were with the Leafs. Career Point Total=1
    Martin Biron taken 16th overall.
    Petr Sykora taken 18th overall.
    Alexei Morozov taken 24th overall.
    1996
    No First round picks.
    1997
    No First or 2nd round picks in a fairly stacked draft. Pretty bad because we could have had a top 5 pick...
    1998
    Maple Leafs select C Nikolai Antropov at 9th overall.
    Alex Tanguay selected 12th overall.
    Simon Gagne selected 22nd overall.
    1999
    Maple Leafs select C Luca Cereda at 24th overall.
    Martin Havlat selected 26th overall.
    2000
    Maple Leafs select C Brad Boyes at 24th overall. He was traded away and has played 1 game in the NHL.
    2001
    Maple Leafs select D Carlo Colaiacovo at 17th overall. Maybe the first good pick so far, but we have yet to see what he can do in the NHL.
    2002
    Maple Leafs select C Alexander Steen at 24th overall. A pretty good draft year for the Leafs because we got Matty Stajan in the 2nd round.
    2003
    No first round draft pick.
    2004
    No first round draft pick.
    2005
    Maple Leafs select Tuukka Rask at 21st overall. Only time will tell.

    Not pretty is it?

    Flyers:
    95-Brian Boucher Radovan Somik Dmitri Tertyshny-died tragically after a grea rookie season
    96-Dainius Zubrus Jesse Boulerice
    97-Todd Fedoruk
    98-Simon Gagne Antero Niittymaki Bruno St. Jacques
    99-Maxime Ouellet
    2000-Justin Williams Roman Cechmanek
    2001-Jeff Woywitka Patrick Sharp Dennis Seidenberg
    2002-Joni Pitkanen
    2003-Jeff Carter Mike Richards. This was great draft year for the Flyers mostly all of the players drafted are very good [prospects. Could very well have 8 out of 11 drafter playing in the NHL and not just call up types.
     
  12. Turner Stevenson in the first round, Chouinard ahead of Gagne? Ouch.

    Actually that list is every player that the Canucks drafted that are in the NHL regardless of team. Schaefer is in Ottawa and Ference might develop into a top 4 d-man but that's it.

    No offense but the last few years they do deserve to be knocked. I actually like Chicago and love the uniforms but the team has struggled the last 10 years or so.

    I went through the same drafts and Chicago has struggled as much or more then Vancouver with their picks. The last 5 years appear to be much better then the previous 5 years so I can see your point. Tuomo looks like he is on his way to being a very good if not great player. But you need to go back to 1988 to see the last time Chicago drafted a good or great player (Jeremy Roenick). Eric Daze in 93 was a good pick because it was 90th overall but the 95 and 96 drafts were disasters and 97 was saved because Kyle Calder was the 130th overall pick otherwise it would be a disaster as well.

    As for the Canucks drafts, I think this year will decide whether the Sedins will be good NHL players or just average players that will head back to Europe in a couple of years. The same can be said for Bryan Allen.

    For the record, I think the selection of Jack Skille was great. I was hoping the Canucks would end up with him.

    Rangers since 1990 (Smith and Sather regimes), player and round taken (starting around '98 a small benefit of the doubt factor is employed...):

    1990
    Doug Weight (2)
    Sergei Zubov (5)
    Sergei Nemchinov (12)
    1991
    Alexei Kovalev (1)
    1992
    Mattias Norstrom (2)
    Eric Cairns (3)
    1993
    Niklas Sundstrom (1)
    Todd Marchant (7)
    1994
    Dan Cloutier (1)
    Kim Johnsson (11)
    1995
    Marc Savard (4)
    Dale Purinton (5)
    1996
    --
    1997
    Mike York (6)
    1998
    Manny Malhotra (1)
    Jason LaBarbera (3)
    Tomas Kloucek (5)
    1999
    Pavel Brendl (1)
    Jamie Lundmark (1)

    The '98 and '99 lists are really lists of the only guys from those drafts that have any remaining chance at a real NHL career, and I wouldn't bet too much on any of them. Really, York is the last NYR pick to make any significant impact. Malhotra will probably have a marginal career of some length and Lundmark still has time-- just-- to get his head and his game together. No Sather pick (2000 to date) has had meaningful NHL service so far... Dan Blackburn from '01 looks to be done due to injury, and some others will get a chance this year with Fedor Tyutin and Henrik Lundqvist probably having the best odds to play a lot and at a high level.

    Think the Canuck Drafting between '84 and '93 deserves a mention as well. Especailly when you consider where we were generally drafting.

    84 - JJ Daigneault (10th)
    85 - Rob Sandlak (3rd)
    86 - Dan Woodley (7th)
    87 - traded
    88 - Linden (2nd) ok here but we were picking second afterall
    89 - Jason Herter (8th)
    90 - Peter Nedved (2nd) - missed Jagr
    91 - Alexei Stoyanov (7th)
    92 - Libor Polasek (21st)
    93 - Mike Wilson (20th)

    Guys like Woodley, Polasek, Herter could barely make their minor league clubs. Somehow we traded Stoyanov for Naslund which must rank as one of the worst trades in NHL history.

    From the 2001 draft

    King has played NHL hockey.

    I think Bieksa will also play at least one NHL game, probably this year. Umberger probably next year.

    2002 onwards its a bit early.

    I think Oilers are winners here:
    90 - someone named Scott Allison was selected 17th overall infront of Keith Tkachuk (19th) and Martin Brodeur(20th). Oh, and Vancouver selected Shawn Antoski 18th..
    91- Tyler Wright infront of Alex Kovalev, Glen Murray, Palffy, Naslund.
    92- Joe Hulbig (13th) while Gonchar, Peka, Straka were available..
    93- Nick Stajduhar (16th). Allison, Koivu and Bertuzzi were selected later.
    94- Jason Bonsignore(4th overall). Enough said.
    95- Kelly (6th). Doan, Dvorak, Iginla were passed by Oil...
    96- Devereaux (6th). But that was a really thin draft.
