You have to admit, the NHL draft is probably the biggest crapshoot you have in organized sports drafting. Trying to envision how an 18 year old will project is difficult to say the least. When a defenseman like Kim Johnnson can be selected with the last pick, it says a lot about the system.
I know. But I was just mentioning 3 names I specifically remember people complaining about right after the draft. I could obviously look at each round and scrutinize every player taken after Fardeleau...but that is not fair.

I was just saying that people on this board were upset, not so much that the Rangers drafted Farledeau, but they passed on higher rated prospects
