    1999

    I think this really puts into perspective just how bad this draft was. I had a LOT of trouble finding people to put in from about 23-28.

    1 Atlanta - Martin Havlat
    2 Vancouver - D. Sedin
    3 Vancouver - H. Sedin
    4 NY Rangers - Henrik Zetterberg
    5 NY Islanders - Ryan Miller
    6 Nashville - Tim Connolly
    7 Washington - Mike Comrie
    8 NY Islanders - Frantisek Kaberle
    9 NY Rangers - Barret Jackman
    10 NY Islanders - Jordan Leopold
    11 Calgary - Nick Boynton
    12 Florida - Ryan Malone
    13 Edmonton - Martin Erat
    14 San Jose - Garnet Exelby
    15 Phoenix - Taylor Pyatt
    16 Carolina - Niclas Havelid
    17 St. Louis - Radim Vrbata
    18 Pittsburgh - Niklas Hagman
    19 Phoenix - Chris Kelly
    20 Buffalo - Radek Martinek
    21 Boston - Branko Radivojevic
    22 Philadelphia - Mike Commodore
    23 Chicago - Oleg Saprykin
    24 Toronto - Steve McCarthy
    25 Colorado - Alexander Khavanov
    26 Ottawa - Adam Hall
    27 New Jersey - Andrew Hutchinson
    28 NY Islanders - Tom Kostopoulos

    It would be a tossup for first between Havlat and Miller. No chance I take either one of the Sedins over Zetterberg or Miller.

    I would take Miller and Zetterberg over the Sedins. Also if I were to know about Connolly's concussion problems I wouldn't take him that high.

    I think Vancouver would still take both Sedins, which is why I put them there. It was not only because of talent, but because of marketing.

    I'm still pissed the Avs took what's his face over Havlat. No one really saw that coming.

    Not even close as bad. 2000 was an OK draft. 1999 is probably the worst draft of all-time.

    You forgot Patirk Stefan somewhere in your list.

    THE 1st overall pick.

    This should tell you something about how bad that draft was:

    12 Florida - Ryan Malone
    13 Edmonton - Martin Erat
    14 San Jose - Garnet Exelby
    15 Phoenix - Taylor Pyatt
    16 Carolina - Niclas Havelid
    17 St. Louis - Radim Vrbata
    18 Pittsburgh - Niklas Hagman
    19 Phoenix - Chris Kelly
    20 Buffalo - Radek Martinek
    21 Boston - Branko Radivojevic
    22 Philadelphia - Mike Commodore
    23 Chicago - Oleg Saprykin
    24 Toronto - Steve McCarthy
    25 Colorado - Alexander Khavanov
    26 Ottawa - Adam Hall
    27 New Jersey - Andrew Hutchinson
    28 NY Islanders - Tom Kostopoulos

    Not one of those players is even 3rd round caliber.

    Yeah, I know. I forgot him. He sucks, too, but I think he'd slot in maybe right before Adam Hall.

    Take Alexander Khavanov out since he was an old overager and put in Stefan there.

    They say talent-wise it's around the same (though I don't really know who 'they' are). But one thing you have to remember, there's a difference between 'low talent' and 'bust'. That draft only saw 5 of the 28 first rounders live up to expecatations, that's a huge bust ratio.

    By saying the talent level is comparable to 2007, you're just saying that rather than expecting a Dany Heatley, Jason Spezza, Ilya Kovalchuk, etc with a top pick, you're more going to get a player like one of the Sedins. Low talent draft should indicate a lower impact in the NHL, and not being unable to make it.

    I agree, a guy like Malone or Erat a team would be happy to take as a mid-late pick. The others are good enough for 2nd or 3rd round pick. Some people here just buy to much into the '1st rounder=star player or bust' hype.

    Okay 2nd rounders or good 3rd rounders.

    What were pregnant women doing to themselves in 1981?

    Imo Erat is a lot underrated... I would pick him before Connolly or Comrie.

    I think I would put Jackman a couple spots higher, above Comrie and Connolly anyway, he'll be one of the better defensive defensemen in the league one day.

    We know that now, but was it also considered a bad draft in'99?

    Man, at the time I didn't follow prospects or the draft. I think that was the first draft I really watched, and I was so excited when the Rangers selected Pavel Brendl, and Jamie Lundmark. It is unbelievable how bad of a draft that was.:amazed:

    I agree, 2000 is great if compared to 1999. Quite a few from the first round made it: Dipietro, Heatley, Garborik, Klesla, Torres, Hartnell, Hainsey, Hossa (sort of...), Orpik, Frolov, Volchenkov, Brad Boyes, Sutherby, Justin Williams, Kronvall, and a few who are strugling but still trying (Ott, Alexeev, Hale, Taffe). That's not bad at all! Add several solid players in later rounds and you got a rather ok draft (Shultz, Bryzgalov, Pettinger, Stoll, Vermette, Paul Martin, Sauer, D.Moore, Visnovsky (!!!), H.Lundqvist (!!!), Lombardi, etc. Quite a few star players.
