Hall, RNH, Yakupov were all consensus #1 picks, every publication had them rank as # 1 overall............! Even Eberle was picked where he was ranked (and the scout Davidsons lived in Regina and knew the family)............!
Has any other juniors picked after the first round made the team.........? Magnus Paajarvi was a #1 pick but he was picked exactly where he was slotted.
I guess Anton Landers is........but the jury is still out on him!
I am not saying Stu is a bad scout........but he has not proven to be a great talent evaluator as expressed previously but he is better than Pendergast.
