Is 1999 the worst draft in recent memory?

#1st ovr- Patrik Stefan. Never lived up to expectations and his peak was at 40 pts.
#2nd and 3rd ovr - the Sedins. Most likely the best players in the draft.
#4 - Pavel Brendl. Never translated junior stats to the NHL. Now plays in the KHL.
#5 - Tim Connolly - solid 50-60pt center, but plagued with concussions and a disappointment considering his high position.
#6 - Bryan Finley - just four NHL games.
#7 - Kris Beech - scored 25 goals in the NHL, now in the SEL for HV71.
#8 - Taylor Pyatt - career high of 37 points. solid depth player, but massive disappointment considering position drafted.
#9 - Jamie Lundmark - career high of 36 points.
#10 - Branislav Mezei - is Branislav Mezei.

That's only the top ten. Five players out of 272 players have been named to the all-star team from that draft class. It's really disappointing and weak.

What are some other drafts with a lot of misses?
