Comparing two people because one's a 4 and 5, then concluding that since one #5 is a hall of famer, the #4 who isn't an obvious hall of famer after 60 or so games at age 19, must be some kind of utter failure by his GM?

Interesting line of thought I guess, if you're into being a fantasy GM or whatever.
Want to see how horribly inept Nashville's management is?

David Legwand was a #2 overall pick. So was Evgeni Malkin.

Scottie Upshall, Scott Hartnell, and Brian Finley were all taken 6th overall. So were Peter Forsberg, Paul Coffey, and Vincent Damphousse.

Dan Hamhuis was taken 12th. Just like Marian Hossa.

Ryan Suter was taken were Bernie Federko and Bill Barber. Both are HOFers, why isn't Suter?

No wonder those clowns haven't won a Stanley Cup.
