Another lesson from history:

1) Daigle.
2) Pronger.
3) Chris Gratton.
4) Paul Kariya.

I imagine people would have been steamed in Kariya was taken 1st overall given Daigle's hype. The hype surrounding Daigle basically caused a pretty dramatic reaction: The draft lottery due to the Sens skating like children to finish out the season.
That sucks for Ottawa, that they passed up two possible HOF's for Daigle. Of course if Daigle had the right attitude it probably wouldn't have been too bad.
