How stupid would it have been if at the time of the draft we drafted a player who was supposed to go 5-10 spots after our pick?

2-3 spots after OK (example Kostitsyn 10 Carter 11th. That we can say we missed)
Well, from experience, any ranking-to-pick movement of 5 or less is perfectly normal (Ex: Player A is ranked 15th by ISS and is drafted 10th or 20th moves by 5). I think Hemsky could have been taken at 7th, and Kopitar was reportedly high on Timmins/Gainey/HF's list for the Habs. But that wasn't my point. Had we taken the best players we could have (in hindsight), we'd have a great team. But no one does that, and we got three solid players too.

That would be awesome! But again, hindsight.
