    Who are some past players that fell on draft day as Cherepanov and Esposito did? I'm just curious to see how they turned out. I seem to recall that Shremp was taken later than expected, but I'm more interested in picks from longer ago so we can get a better read on how they ended up.

    ... are the guys in the last 10-12 years who were consensus top 5-8 picks and had the same reaction on draft day to their ~10 pick falls as Esposito and Cherepanov today.

    Mixed bag - some turned out well, others were spot on for the reasons they fell.

    Hudler, Colagiacomo, and Latendresse were three 'mid-first rounders' who fell well past the first round - 2 turned out well, one horribly.

    Keep in mind of the people on that list Sykora dropped because he had a broken leg and Holden busted in part because a skate blade cut through the tendons in his arm making his wicked wristshot not so wicked.

    I'm not sure if Kopitar qualifies, but he was considered a top 5/6 pick, and he fell to 11th.

    At the risk of seriously dating myself, Colagiacomo is going to be the best playmaking winger ever.

    Pat O´Sullivan... Despite his personal problems I expected him to go a lot earlier!

    Well, he didn't plummet as far as Cherepanov did, which is why I wasn't sure if he qualified.
