The Sharks were given the 2nd overall pick in 1991 and not the 1st because they were an expansion team. However, in 1992 the Lightning were given the 1st overall pick because they WERE an expansion team. Now this decision was probably based on Lindros, but that's why I came here to post that. If the Sharks got the 1st overall pick in 1991 and drafted Eric Lindros how would it affect the Sharks and the National Hockey League? How would Eric Lindros do considering he would not be playing in the same division as Scott Stevens?
