The last bad #1 overall pick was Stefan (DiPietro if you think he wasn't going to be good).
I'm sure some people would say Fleury was a bad pick, but he's won a Stanley Cup (and was awesome when it mattered), so I doubt they consider it bad.
Yakupov is the only pick people don't know about yet and my guess is that he'll be pretty great, especially if he gets out of Edmonton - although I felt Ryan Murray should have been the #1 overall that year anyway.
Ekblad is the consensus #1 and all things point to him being a great NHL player.
