Brendl was a bust, but that was a horrible draft class in 1999. Who did we miss out on? Tim Connolly or Taylor Pyatt? Our top pick sucked, but the same can be said for most of the other guys taken in round one. Look who was taken immediately after Brendl:

Tim Connolly
Brian Finley
Kris Beech
Taylor Pyatt
Jamie Lundmark
Branislav Mezei
Olli Saprykin
Denis Shvidki
Jani Rita
Jeff Jillson
Scott Kelman
David Tanabe

And on and on. It was an awful draft year. Meanwhile, the first round in 2003 was LOADED with future stars. Jessiman was the worst pick by a mile.
