Off the top of my head probably closer to the top 75% of #2 picks over the years than 50%. (pre 2000ish as top end drafting has gotten better in recent times)

Sure he could have been better but that can be said of almost any player .
Suprising how many #2 picks were poor prior to 2000.

Zyuzin, Tverdovsky, Fallon, Chyzowski, Doug Smith, Perry Turnbull.
