Chris Osgood was left exposed by the Detroit Red Wings because they had acquired Dominik Hasek from the Sabres in the off-season. Some suspected that his salary might scare off any takers but with the first selection the Islanders picked Osgood. Osgood helped the Islanders make the playoffs in 2002, the first time since 1994.

Kirk Muller was Blue Jackets property for mere minutes. Immediately after the draft he was traded back to the Stars for the rights to Evgeny Petrochinin, a Russian defenceman drafted by the Stars in 1994. Muller played two more seasons for the Stars and Petrochinin never left Russia.
