The Wings haven't had many 1st round picks because they trade them all. Brendan Smith was the last one they had I believe.
Thanks for the clarification. I pulled the 65% out of my ass.
Nope, Riley Sheahan was the last 1st rounder (2010 Draft). McCollum actually was also a 1st round pick (2008), a year after Brendan Smith (2007).
Before Smith? Kindl (2005).
So, of the 4 1st round picks the Wings have had since 2000, only one of them, Smith, is decent.
Not that great.
