Nobody really knows for sure who can really get the job done. GMs and bosses play the percentages by picking the person with the best credentials, given the data they have on the candidates.
That's why companies, governments, don't hire solely based on someone's education level. Everything else you do in life, to your personality, experience, etc., is accounted for.

Similarly, why hockey teams should not draft solely based on junior-level championships.

Basing your pick on percentage alone is a gamble.

If Montreal got their picks right, they could've had Getzlaf, Kopitar, and Quick. Instead, they got Kostitsyn, Price, and Latendresse.
