Power Ranking the NHL Draft Classes of the 2000s

The NHL draft is the league's lifeblood.

There are ways of putting a team together if you are going to have a poor year finding young talent, but that's not going to get it done in the long run.

However, the talent level in the draft is not going to be equal every year. 

The 2005 draft that had Sidney Crosby at the top of the class was very strong. The 2000 draft that saw Dany Heatley as the second pick did not have anywhere near the talent or depth that Crosby's draft year had.

In this feature, we look at the draft classes from the 2000s and power rank them.
