People say forget Jessiman... ok, but how do you forget Sanguenetti over Giroux
A few things happened before the 2010 draft - Sather was burned by Zherdev and Semenov who both opted for the KHL the previous season. These events were huge in what happened at the 2010 draft, a time when it seemed all the doom and gloom of the KHL stealing players was at its highest.
Jessiman still remains the quintessential 'don't take a shot in the dark unless you've already got the cupboard stocked'.
Bobby Sangs was too good to be true, never felt good about that pick. Too many Ranger fans happy at one time - should've seen the writing on the wall.
But at the time NO ONE was talking Giroux on this board. Patrick Berglund, Mike Grabner and Chris Summers got alot of hype. Giroux was just not what GM's were thinking back then. Too small, just like Niklas Kronwall
