    here's the all the 2nd overall for the last 6 years;

    Bobby Ryan 2nd overall 2005
    Jordan Staal 2nd overall 2006
    James Van Riemsdyk 2nd overall 2007
    Drew Doughty 2nd overall 2008
    Victor Hedman 2nd overall 2009
    Tyler Seguin 2nd overall 2010



    I wanted to know who's the best and who's the worst? Did the team did the thing by drafting them? Here's my rank on them;

    1st. Drew Doughty
    2nd. Victor Hedman
    3rd. Bobby ryan
    4th. Jordan Staal
    5th. James Van Riemsdyk
    6th. Tyler Seguin


    I believe the worst 2nd overall from that list is Jordan staal since Pitts could of gotten any of the follower;

    jonathan Toews
    Nicklas Backstrom
    Claude Giroux
    Phill Kessel
    Chris Stewart

    I feel that Jordan staal is a great player but I would of pick Toews or Backstrom over Staal.


    So give me your list and the reason behind it.

    Almost as bad as ranking Seguin as the worst 2nd overall in the last 6 years when he has played one season in the NHL.

    JVR still has a ways to go and Tyler Seguin hasn't even finished his FIRST NHL SEASON.

    it's simply a thread and I feel Seguin won't be a all star. I feel that Hedman is the real deal and that Bobby Ryan is also the real deal but I would rather Hedman on my team over Bobby Ryan. I would even take Jordan Staal over Bobby for the simple reason that Jordan Staal couple play everywhere on a team from 1st center to 3rd, kills pk, is on the pp, never injured or almost. I just wanted to see what people thaught of the 2nd overla instead the 1st overall.

    This is not directed at previous comments, as no one has made this type of comment, but I just feel like typing this out for any readers that might have this thought...

    For those who think that Staal was a bad #2 overall pick I just want to point out that without Staal, the Pens couldn't have won the Cup.

    Yes, there is no question that Toews is a better player than Staal. However, Staal is an awesome 3rd line center for Pittsburgh. Besides, rarely do 1st overall picks become the best player of the class, unless he's name is Alexander Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby, so why should we think the 2nd overall pick will be better than everyone else that's drafted after him?

    The only thing that matters is that Staal played a significant role in helping the Pens win the Cup, which is a huge achievement. Plus, the fact that he's still young (22) and can still become an even more dynamic player, justifies him being the 2nd overall pick. I'm pretty sure the Penguins management aren't complaining about selecting him 2nd overall, so why should you?
    ;)

    Yes, Victor Hedman over 32 goal, 63 point Bobby Ryan and Tyler Seguin as the worst 2nd overall choice.

    Great thread.

    Almost as bad as this trolling attempt.
