First off, again, you can point to the Sedin's but I can point to way more players that were taken high and never became anything. Sedin's are the exception, not the rule.

Like comparing Mcilrath to Chara not developing into an all star by 25. That's nice, but how many big men end up being Chara? He's the exception, not the rule.

Sedin's did not set the world afire right away offensively(Dan Sedin did have 20 goals his rookie year though), but they both could play the other side of the game at the Pro level. Also, those Canuck teams didn't have much else besides Markus Naslund.
