draft arguments are always among my least favorite, across all sports.
It's so hard to know what's going on inside the room. Who did they want, did they try to trade, why did they draft player X.
After they draft a player, was he the most talented and just not coached properly. Did injuries occur? Did something else happen?
Then, it takes time, especially in hockey. You can't judge a draft that year or even the year after. 2 years seems to be the bare minimum to even consider judging a draft, especially if you're picking in the bottom-third of each round.
I would say that Shero's drafting ability is probably no worse than league average, people just aren't happy with the position he deems most valuable.
