Mikhail Kuleshov: 25th overall in 1999. Kuleshov never got more than 8 goals in the AHL. He only played 3 games in the NHL before going back to Russia and getting 3 points in 34 games. Players taken after: Marty Havlat, Mike Commodore, Henrik Zetterberg. Jonas Johansson: 28th overall in 2002. Johansson was well thought of after getting 35 points in 26 games in his first WHL season. He ended up only ever playing 1 NHL game and it wasn't for the Avs. Players taken after him: Trevor Daley, Matt Stajan, Jiri Hudler, Valtteri Filppula, and DUNCAN KEITH. Joey Hishon: 17th overall in 2010. This one makes me sad as I feel he never really got a proper shot and injuries derailed him. Nevertheless, he's 25 and time is running out. He has decent AHL numbers but thus far has only played 13 NHL games. Players taken after: Evgeny Kuznetzov, Charlie Coyle, Kevin Hayes, Nick Bjugstad. Ryan Stoa: 34th overall in 2005. This was our first pick in 2005 and we wasted it. He is 29 and has only played 40 games in the NHL getting 7 points. Players taken after: Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Justin Abdelkadar, Adam McQuaid. Conner Bleackley 23rd in 2014. He may turn out decent, but for us he was a bust. When you don't sign a player and then let them get redrafted while also trading our compensation for Boedker who didn't resign with us...yeah, this one still stings. Players taken after: Jared McCann, David Pastrnak, Nikita Sherback. Honourbal Mentions: Vaclav Nedorost (14th in 2000), Scott Parker (20th in 98), Peter Ratchuk (25th in 96), Duncan Siemens (11th in 2011) Siemens is still only 22 and COULD turn into something. Sakic wants him in the NHL this year as a top 6 dman, but 11th overall on a DFD who might not turn out gives him an honourable mention spot. We will see if he hits official draft bust or if he becomes decent.
