You can say that about any pick though. There will almost always be a better player taken after your pick. There are just as many worse players picked around there too, we could have had Boychuk, Teubert or Gustafsson. At least we didn't use the #5 pick to take Filatov lol.

And Sbisa doesn't really belong with those other guys IMO. Gardiner is a better defenseman than him at the moment and likely will be in the future too.

Also, at least 16 teams can say in hindsight that they should have picked Eberle. Everyone but LA, TB, Ottawa, Stl. Louis and maybe Buffalo.
