I'll go with the former. Gemel Smith (4) and Brandon Troock (5) look like solid picks with good upside to be NHLers.
I hate when people say that. Couturier fell last year for a "reason" too, and it was obviously a pretty crappy one. Tyler Myers was ranked higher than 12th -- 4th, I think, to be exact -- in his draft year, and he fell for "a reason" (because Boychuck, Filatov, Teubert, and Beach are obviously better players??)
If the guys who fell don't pan out, the reasons are only going to be clear in hindsight, because plenty of really really good players have fallen past prospects who can't even crack an NHL roster.
