2006 - 9 picks - Toews at 3 but the other 8 players never played in the NHL

2007 - 7 picks - Kane at 1 no other player became a regular NHL player

2008 - 7 picks - Ben Smith has played 19 games, no other players hvae any NHL games

Seeing how he was fired on July 14, 2009. I am unsure how much say he had in the 2009 draft that took place 2 weeks earlier.

Just brutal
That really is awful. Wow.

Does anyone know how much the scouting staff changed from Tallon's years til now? Are a lot of the same? Completely different staff? I'd be curious to know.
