Anaheim - have picked 2nd OA twice
Carolina/Hartford - have picked 2nd OA twice
Minnesota - have picked 3rd OA
Nashville - have picked 2nd OA
San Jose - have picked 2nd OA
Vancouver - have picked 2nd OA twice
Calgary - have never picked in the top 3

I firmly believe you need to pick in the top 3 for a guaranteed elite player most years (occasionally you need to pick in the top 2). We absolutely have had that worst drafting luck of any team in the history of the NHL IMO.
