2006: First Round Pick traded to St. Louis for Doug Weight

I would say this trade worked out well for the ‘Canes. We won the Stanley Cup!  Weight played an important leadership role during the playoffs before his injury.  The player selected with the Hurricanes pick (30th Overall) made no NHL impact.
