Is this draft worst ever? (news article)

Interesting read that Tim P Tweeted (but didn't write)...

The depth of quality talent in this year’s NHL entry draft has some critics predicting it could be among the worst in league history.

A recent report in the Ottawa Sun suggested the NHL 2012 entry draft “could be weakest in years”.

Bruce Garrioch cited an unnamed Eastern Conference executive suggested the level of talent in this year’s draft was “terrible”, prefacing it with an bleeped out expletive.

“It’s just a bad year,” the East executive said. “There are just a lot of warts on a lot of the players. There’s just not as many slam-dunk guarantees as there normally are right from the top. If you take some of these guys, you wonder what you’re going to get out of them. “
