Daniel Dore was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques well ahead of rank because he was French Canadian and there was media pressure, as usual, on the Nordiques and Canadiens to draft local players.Consensus amongst people who had scouted Midget"AAA" and the QMJHL was possibly late first round probably second. Canadiens made similar mistakes during the era - Eric Charron, Jose Charbnneau, to name a couple.

Size and skills never meshed to produce results because he lacked motivation and smarts.
