You can find example of that for every NHL team, I guess every NHL scouting staff is incompetant
The Rangers drafted Hugh Jessiman ahead of those guys, makes Ak look like a massive steal.
Point is, unless you draft a Crosby Lemieux or Ovechkin there is a lot of projection in the draft, you draft 17 and 18 year old kids trying to figure out how good they will be in 4-5-6 years. Will they fill out, will their skating cut it at the NHL level, will their grit, intensity or work ethic improve with maturity etc
