Draft positon and success

Using 200 NHL games as a standard, 90% of defensemen taken among the top ten picks, have achieved that goal, 65% of those taken in picks 11-20, 59% of those taken in picks 21-30. The most successful drafts in terms of d-men were 1979 (13 of 14) and 1998 (10 of 11).

  1. When did you start this blog? I've been fooling around with Draft analysis for a while. I hope to do post some stuff in August during the dead time between free agency and the start of training camp.
