How did Darcy do?

Darcy Regier has a spotty record in the first round of the NHL draft but does well overall, as reporter John Vogl points out in a story in Wednesday's Buffalo News.

His drafts are short on star power but a look at the NHL All-Star teams from the past decade shows most of the top players were either drafted before Darcy came to the Sabres or they were taken with premium picks (early in the first round). Thomas Vanek has been Regier's only premium pick and he made the second All-Star team in 2006-07. Brian Campbell, a sixth-round pick of Regier's in 1997, is the only other Sabre to be named a first- or second-team All-Star in that time.

By comparison, the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins stocked their roster with a slew of premium picks.

TSN has a couple of interesting pieces on the draft, including one on the value of first-round picks and another on the value of draft picks overall.

Take a look at all this and let us know how you feel Darcy did.
