You mis-understand my point. It was not that Petrecki was a bad pick, it's that DW is throwing him onto waivers and essentially giving up on him. DW has a habit of treating 1st-round picks like they don't matter, and it shows up in the teams lack of depth in forwards (at the moment) and defense (in the past).

I believe DW doesn't largely pick the actual guys taken in the first round, but I think the fact that the org is generally so bad at them is why DW continues to waste them, rather than holding on and trying to get a few gems here and there. Since DW has been GM:

2003 - Takes Michalek 6th overall, passes over Ryan Suter (who went next) despite a need for defensive depth at the time.

2003 - Trades up from 21 to 16 to take Steve Bernier, passing up Parise (#17), Getzlaf (#19), Brent Burns (#20), and Corey Parry (#28).

2004 - Trades up from #28 to #21 in order to draft Kaspar. Passes up Meszaros (#22), Cory Schneider (#26), and Mike Green (#29).

2005 - Trades up from #12 to #8 to take Setoguchi. Passes up Kopitar (#11) and Marc Staal (#12).

2006 - Trades up from #20 to #16 in order to take Ty Wishart. Claude Giroux goes #22 and Patrick Berglund #25. #20 is used to take David Fischer.

2007 - Trades the 2007 Sharks 1st (#22) and Josh Gorges for Craig Rivet. #22 is used to take Max Pacioretty.

2007 - Trades pick #26 (acquired from the Devils as part of the Malakhov deal) plus Niememan and Barribal for Bill Guerin. Pick #26 is used to take David Perron.

2007 - Trades up from #13 (acquired from Toronto in Toskala deal) to #7 to draft Couture. #13 is used to take Lars Eller

2007 - Trades two 2nds (2007 and 2008) for pick #28, which is used to draft Petrecki.

2008 - Trades the 2008 1st (#26) plus Bernier for Brian Campbell. #26 is used to draft Tyler Ennis.

2009 - Traded away 2009 1st (#26) with Carle and Wishart for Dan Boyle. The 26th is used to draft Kyle Palmieri. Dylan Olsen goes #28.

2010 - Actually uses 2010 1st (#28) to draft Charlie Coyle.

2011 - Trades Coyle, Setoguchi, and 2011 1st (#28) for Burns (who he passed over in 2003 for Kaspar). #28 becomes Zach Phillips.

2012 - Actually uses 2011 1st (#17) to draft Hertl.

If DW would simply hold on to the Sharks 1st-rounders, this team would have been so much better off by now.
