Pre-draft hype is a huge factor too.
People cared more about Anton Zlobin than Teddy Bluegers. But hey those handful of games played in the Memorial Cup for the hivermind to witness definitely aren't the reason for people caring more about a boom/bust pick in the 6th than 2nd.
Ties into the Maatta was a great pick for being a "steal" while Pouliot is still **** on for being a " reach". Again to be fair, pre-draft rankings generally vindicate the hindsighters doubts a few years removed the draft
