Then Yzerman and company picked guys that suited roles better.

Gold Medal.
Rob Zamuner, Sahne Corson, Trevor Linden - Nagano was the exact opposite of the most skilled players taken. Bobby Clarke took a group of grinders - it was Greztky in Salt Lake City that set the precedent of the Best Players go and play outside of their rolls, that's why you saw Eric Lindros as a checking Center in Salt Lake and Toewes do the same in Vancouver.
