Because a team made up of all the "best" players would easily lose to a team made up of players best suited to their roles.
Don't you turn into Kyle McMahon! The best picks may very well be role players!!! We are not looking at 'the most offensively talented' but instead the ten guys who could and should play ON A TEAM at a higher level of competition, whether an offensive line or a defensive line guy, a powerplay specialist, stay at home defenseman, enforcer, penalty killer, whatever! My list of 10 will probably not have many first line players and, in fact, I worried that the opposite of the problem you mention might happen, a team of role players. But heck, we'll see what we get and go with that.

So let this be a clarification: the next-best ten picks you send in should reflect your judgement of guys who should have made a AAA or MLD team (made the team! which means have a role on that team, whether 1st line or 3rd line or back line or whatever).
