Did the 2011 draft hurt us more than anything else?

The trades leading up to that one did, the trade that had us give up Hamilton and Seguin.
Let's say Burke had originally traded Tomas Kaberle & their 1st round pick 7th overall in 2009 for Phil Kessel, is Toronto a contender right now? It's a given they would have selected Seguin if they had the 2nd overall pick in 2010, however what are the chances they select Dougie Hamilton 9th overall in 2011? The reason I say that is some people say he should have been a top 5 pick that year, so why did he fall to 9th overall?
