Why does this even matter? You know that if the Sharks tanked they would draft a big defenseman or a safe 2 way center from the 67s with flaws in his skating

Besides top 5 draft pick history recap:
Fat Balloon, Mike Rathje, Andrei Zyuzin, Patrick Marleau, Brad Stuart

Tanking does not ensure you get a future great. Marleau is far and away the best player on that list. As good as Marleau is, he never was, and never will be that top player to build around for a successful team. Scouting is better these days, but it's still far from a sure thing.
