Expressing bitterness and/or criticizing that the no. 2 pick isn't as good as the no. 1 pick is dumb. That people don't realize that doesn't make it any less dumb. JVR was picked no. 2 because he was scouted and evaluated as not being as good as Kane (or not having his potential).

From the perspective of a Flyers fan, the comparison you should make is who we could have drafted instead. Did we make the right pick?
Fair enough. I think we did make the right pick. At the time I was more excited than I am now, but that's how it is with a lot of things. If the draft went down today I would probably take JVR still. Logan Couture is pretty solid as well and he is another pretty big dude who could play Flyers hockey, but he plays center and we don't need no centers.
