Um... Dubnyk? #14 pick, 1st round. The others? Well, you have me on a technicality. However, Petry was seen as blue-chip and treated as such. Hartikainen was also pretty anticipated to get into their system. I won't even comment on Dubnyk cause he was a 1st rounder. And Lander would be the only outlier who proves me wrong, though I seem to remember that he was another of those "looking forward to" prospects.
I'm wondering why we never seem to get the gems in the rough, why we can't seem to have a Chris Tanev, or even better, where's our Datsyuks and Zetterbergs. Ain't it our turn? Aint' it??

And don't forget that Dubnyk's emergence as a bona-fide #1 could have easily gone the other way. Oilers blew at least one season of development with him when they didn't have an AHL affiliate.
