About Those First-Rounders

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.

  1. I wish they provided information as to how they came up with the grades. This reminds me of the English teachers I had in high school who would grade my essay based on how their day was going or if I kissed their ass in the last week.
    I agree the Canadiens haven’t had great draft picks but I think we’ve done a very good job retaining their value.
