2008 Kevin Love (5) Tyler Cuma (23)

The Wolves picked third but swapped O.J. Mayo for Kevin Love, who developed into an All-Star. Cuma has yet to break through but is still only 23. Winner: Wolves.

 

2009 Ricky Rubio (5) and others Nick Leddy (16)

The Wolves made a mess of much of the rest of the first round, but Rubio is a pass-first point guard and fan favorite. Leddy is battling for a Stanley Cup after being dealt to Chicago in the ill-fated Cam Barker deal. Winner: Wolves.

 

2010 Wes Johnson (4) Mikael Granlund (9)

Johnson did not work out here and is now in Phoenix. Granlund debuted for the Wild as a 20-year-old last season and, while he struggled, still has great potential. Winner: Wild.

 

2011 Derrick Williams (2) Jonas Brodin (10)

Williams has been up-and-down but showed improvement a year ago. Brodin, however, sparkled as a 19-year-old rookie last season. Winner: Wild.

 

2012 No pick Matt Dumba (7)

The Wolves traded their pick for Chase Budinger, who was injured for much of 2012-13 and who could leave via free agency. Dumba is still just 18 and remains a top prospect. Winner: Wild.

  • The Wolves have botched a lot of draft picks, but choosing Ricky Rubio in 2009 was a great move.

  • The Wild's Mikael Granlund (64) was picked ninth overall in 2010 and shows great promise.
