I'm not sure what the trades were but if you look at the picks we had:

2002: 1 1, 2 2s, 2 3s, 1 4, 2 5s, 2 6s, 2 7s.
2003: 1 1, 1 2, 3 3s, 1 4, 2 6s, 2 7s
2004: 2 1s, 1 4, 3 6s, 3 7s
2005: 1 1, 1 3, 1 4, 1 5, 1 6, 1 7

I wasn't following the draft very closely back then. Did the league give us extra picks in 2002? In 2004, we didn't have a 2nd, a 3rd, or a 5th (after trading up for Babin, iirc.) But look at all those 6s and 7s.

2003 is the real changeup though, with 3 3s but no 5. I have a feeling a 6 and a 7 that year were probably compensatory picks.

By 2005, we have a more normal pick distribution. But those first three years, we've got an ungodly number of 6s and 7s.
