Teams like Boston drafted top guys and they didnt tank. Dallas found Benn in round 5, they drafted Neal in round 2. These guys are there we just need to draft them. I'm not very confident in our scouts
Tarasenko and his 12 points in 22 games? That Tarasenko?

He looks like an OK player, but nothing special.

And you completely missed my point. Guys like Benn and Neal don't fall that often these days. As scouting has gotten better, these players don't normally fall. Those guys obviously did, but it's much more uncommon than it used to be.
