Did the 2011 draft hurt us more than anything else?

I'm ok with the Biggs pick because players like Biggs are all but essential to having a winning team, and are pretty rare. We traded a valuable pick to move up to get him, which in hindsight appears to be a mistake. However you never know with prospects honestly. Maybe Rakell and Gibson never play a game in the NHL. Maybe Biggs doesn't either. Too early to tell.
My real problem is the picking of Percy at 25. That was a big jump and we didn't get great value using that pick at 25 to pick Percy. I think Percy is a good prospect, but probably should have been taken in the early-mid second where he was ranked mostly. I wanted Jenner personally, but there were a handful of good forward prospects taken after that pick such as Jenner, Danault, Phillips, Rattie, Saad, Jurco, and Ritchie that the Leafs probably should of looked at before Percy. Apparently they were very high on Percy though so we'll see how he pans out.
