Is 1999 the worst draft in recent memory?

1975 would probably be the worst ever due to the best players being selected as underage picks the year before (Paiement, Larouche, Trottier, etc.).
No Hall Of Famers. Only 6 players from it ever played in the All-Star Game (by comparison the '74 draft had 21). The only player in it to play over 1000 games was the 210th selection (Dave Taylor).
1985 was fairly below-average as well. Lots of decent players with long respectable careers (Dahlen, Johansson, Nieuwendyk, Olausson, McKay, etc.) but lacking those two or three superstars that every other 80s draft had.
