Not implying anything other than the fact that question makes this thread funny.

Colossal failure isn't missing the best player in the draft when the guy you took is the guy everyone would have taken. Colossal failure is being in the #1 spot three years straight and seemingly having the mindset that that would make it easy.

Is not all scouting, some teams develop better.
And therein lies your error. Neither Oilers' management nor the majority of Oilers' fan thought it would be easy to rebuild the franchise from where it was 3-4 seasons ago. Or can you provide any proof that supports your assumption?
