Ron Schwartz at Silver Oak Blog has put together a nice look into NHL draft first-round picks since 2001, showing charts and graphs, and he breaks down every first-rounder from every team and where they’re playing now. He gives us the distribution of each position, shows a world map of where they’ve all come from, and it’s a nice job and deserves a look.
See what he says and scroll down to the visual work. Have a look at the Habs picks in the new millennium, beginning with Mike Komisarek, who went 7th overall. Other first-round Habs as the years unfolded after 2001 were Chris Higgins, Andrei Kostitsyn, Kyle Chipchura, Carey Price, David Fischer, Ryan Mcdonagh, Louis Leblanc, Jarred Tinordi, and Nathan Beaulieu.
