As much as some people would like to believe they aren't, picks like Jamie Benn (2007, 5th Rd) and Brendan Gallagher (2010, 5th Rd) are complete draft anomalies, and are the complete exception to the rule. Who would you have drafted in 2011 over Miller? Saad? In hindsight, it's easy to say that. 2012? Matteau? Please. 2013, we didn't even have a first, so they swung for the fences at late round hopefuls, which is all you can do with no first. If you're pessimistic about this team's drafting in the last few years, I don't really know what to tell you. Because somebody needs to find me these obvious late round superstars we keep missing out on.
