With the failed MacLean picks, there's a lot of them that just totally tanked and never were capable of playing even in the AHL.
And yet the result is the same, which pretty much bears out what the Simon Fraser study showed--most NHL picks from rounds 4 onward could be done at random and turn out as well.
Howson has yet to draft
a player who has turned out as well as Nash or even Klesla. And it is not as if he hasn't had picks as high as MacLean did.
