It wasn't a perfectly state of affairs.

Here are all the teams in front of us that had a worse 1st round:

Columbus: Nikolai Zherdev (about the same, a little worse IMO)
Atlanta: Brayden Cobourn (about the same, a little better IMO as Cobourn is a top 4 D and AK46 is not in the NHL...)

Here are all the teams below us that had a worse 1st round:

New York Rangers: Hugh Jessiman
New York Islanders: Robert Nilsson
San Jose Sharks: Steve Bernier
Washington Capitals: Eric Fehr (slightly worse than us, but they were also about 10 picks lower)
Boston Bruins: Mark Stuart (worse than us, but were also 10 picks lower)
Edmonton Oilers: Marc-Antoine Pouliot
Florida Panthers: Anthony Stewart (slightly better than us, 10-15 picks lower)
Los Angeles Kings: Brian Boyle (slightly better than us, 15+ picks lower)
Los Angeles Kings: Jeff Tambellini
Ottawa Senators: Patrick Eaves (slightly better than us, 15+ picks lower)
St. Louis Blues: Shawn Belle.

My point is out of the 20 teams below us, 9 of them had a better 1st round than us with a better selection, and most of them by a long shot. 50+% of the players in the 1st round are either stars or impact players in the NHL. Ours is no longer playing IN the NHL.

How in the world are Stewart, Boyle or Eaves even close to AK46? AK was a legit top 6 forward, Stewart isn't an NHLer and Boyle/Eaves are fringe guys.
