Past Avalanche Drafts (Round 2)


And here we go with Round 2. As AD pointed out today, the Avalanche have a lot of flame outs here with just Paul Stastny and Peter Budaj having reached the 100-game barrier (although it's still a little early to judge a lot of the recent selections). The Avs have had at least 2 second round picks in each draft going back to 2005 and they indeed go into this year's draft with two picks (33 and 49).

When I looked at the Avs draft history last year, I found that Avalanche 2nd rounders had the least number of NHL games of any of the first 7 rounds. I'm going to tally those numbers again later this week, but it appears that the 601 NHL games from Colorado's 2nd rounders, this is still traditionally the weakest round for the team. Oddly, with all the busts there doesn't appear to be a lot of missed talent where the Avalanche picked, although Yuri Babenko taken just 4 picks ahead of Zdeno Chara certainly stings.
