1st round OHL draft picks are generally expected to have some positive impact on their team IMO.
While doing a "re-draft" might be a little over the top, after 1/3 of the season, I don't see any reason why you can't critique the performance and impact a rookie has had.

If we're so quick to praise the performance of Connor McDavid, Spencer Watson, Michael Dal Colle etc after 1/3 of the season, why can't we be a little critical of Brett Hargrave, Eric Cornel or Jeremiah Addison after the same period of time.

And the Ryan Kujawinski example is a red herring. He got next to no playing time in Sarnia up until the trade last year, so naturally his numbers would be down. Most of the players mentioned that have "under-performed" have gotten plenty of ice time.
