His bio on this site is hilarious:

McBean suffered a bad knee injury early into his career and never was the player he was expected to be as a result. The guy was a puckmoving dynamo in the WHL at times though, and if he had turned into a 50-60 point defenseman like he was expected to, I can understand the ranking. The Kings didn't really help his development either, as he was a typical 80's rush job to the pros, playing 27 games right after he was drafted. When they finally sent him back to juniors, he had 45 points in 30 games in the WHL, which would have been a pace for 108 points over a full season as an 18-year-old.

Trivia note: The coach for McBean in Medicine Hat that season? Barry Melrose.
