AKA: Best draft class ever? I'm shocked to find out how many 1000 gamers are from 1979, but if you look at 2003, more and more legit NHLers pop up every year. The first round is just a solid block of people that will most likely be in the league for years and years. 2003 may not get as many hall of famers, but I've never seen a draft with so many solid NHLers. So just in terms of successful picks, which draft will be better 20 years from now?
