I think that's a fairly disingenuous comment. Draft position doesn't determine value of a player. If Dallas had only gotten 60 NHL games out of Jamie Benn, it would have been a huge fail by the organization, even though he was drafted 30 picks after Omark. A lotto ticket that cost you 2 dollars stops being worth 2 dollars if it's a winner (unless it's a $2 winner )

Now excuse me while I go drink to help me forget the fact we could have picked Benn instead of Omark.
