Edmonton is having the same thing happen with Paajarvi right now. Certainly not living up to draft expectations, and I, for one, have been very disappointed with him.

Because there are so many 6th overall superstars in the league? You try to draft a star with every pick. That said there are so many players even that get picked 1st overall (still playing in this league!) that never become stars. Getting a good 2nd line player out of the first round of a draft is not a bad thing. You can be disappointed all you want, but unless it's a very top end draft year (look at this year) chances are the 'can't miss' prospects are gone by 6. Then it becomes a gamble.

Personally I wish we had taken Hamilton...I have no idea why we drafted Zibanejad where we did. It was a disappointing draft overall for me as I don't think that Noesen or Puempel are going to be impact players either. Who knows though they are all young and have a long time to develop.
