First round draft picks in same season.

1995-96 was the last SEASON that 8 different first rounders appeared for Isles:
Brett Lindros -18 games
Todd Bertuzzi -76 games
Darius Kasparaitis -46 games
Scott Lachance-55 games
Dean Chynoweth-14 games
Brad Dalgarno -18 games
Derek King -61 games
Patrick Flatley -56 games

I have not had the opportunity yet to verify that five of them appeared in the same yet.
As many as 9 Isles 1st round picks have appeared in a game in the same season (several times from the mid 80's-thru 89-90).


Thanks, Roger.
