If he turns out to be a nobody, we certainly won't be the first team to miss on a first rounder.
But he wasn't a 3rd or 4th rounder. He was the 12 player taken in a very good draft by a team that needed to take a player they were sure (or as close to it) would play in the NHL.
The complaining won't make a difference but lets not overlook what a bad pick this has turned out to be.
