There's a name from the past I forgot about...
From what I remember about Bonsignore though was that he was highly touted... It's just too bad he didn't like playing with the rough stuff...
Most of the drafting is done by the scouts wisdom... The GM has the final say, but they generally go by what the scouts are telling them... During that time, Edmonton's scouts were not very strong (to say the least)... It was the same group that went around choosing Messier, Anderson, Fuhr and what not... but they lost their touch in/around the mid/late 80's...
To be fair to Slats though, he did choose some nice gems in his hey day as well...
Arnott, Smyth (in that same draft.. 2 places down) to name a few... as well, he hit a couple of dingers with the Rangers the past few years as well.. in Blackburn, Tyutin...
