No. No they're not.

Did you not hear McKenzie today during the first round? "Player X projects to be a strong two way third line player". That was the first round.

So few players become stars. The reality is, the odds are still against most of these players. Marc-Andre Bourdon was one of the most successful players from the third round in his draft class. Just think about that.
