It only looks like it works that way because of how inept the Oilers picks have been managed for yrs. Successful teams have not been bound and tied in kryptonite to this logic.

A player being picked #1 overall doesn't mean they will even make the NHL. A pick is just simply a speculation of what the player might become. Any scout will (and does say if you read any hockey articles reflecting on picks) that you never know what any player will do against men. We have seen what Omark can do against men.
