What If Every NHL Team Was Composed of Its Own Draft Picks?

Every NHL team has them: the players who got away. Maybe it was a skilled winger the coach didn't appreciate, or a late-blooming goalie who didn't get an opportunity until he arrived in another NHL city. It's always frustrating for teams to see the players they've drafted and developed blossom somewhere else.

What if we could reverse the process? What would it look like if every NHL team's roster was composed entirely of the players it selected at the annual draft? 

That's the question we strive to answer here. We've sorted through each team's draft table (please note: undrafted free-agent signings are not included) and constructed a 23-man NHL roster entirely of the picks those teams made. In some cases, rosters grew incredibly powerful; in others, we were forced to bring back players from the AHL or distant European leagues just to round out the group.
