Its extremely relevant who was ranked higher. Its one thing to draft Alexander Daigle first overall and have him not pan out, when every other team in the league would have done the same thing.

Its a totally different kettle of fish to draft a Sergei Bautin at number 17 and have him not pan out, and have Bob MacKenzie not know who the hell was just drafted.

You can go through every GM in the history of the leagues draft picks and pick a better player who was drafted later in the draft in certain years..

that was 1 of 2 Bautin moments that will live in infamy - TSN playing highlights of Sergey Brylin (who went on to have a longer career than Bautin) and Bautin, upon being traded to Detroit, vomiting after his first practice.

So the fact that the majority of players taken in the NHL Jets v.1 after the Jets had much better if not HOF careers with the exception of Teemu Selanne?

Was it bad luck? Fluke?

1979 - Mann - Goulet
1980 - Babych - Savard
1982 - Kyte - David Shaw
1983 - McBain - Neely
1984 - No Pick
1985 - Stewart - Corriveau
1986 - Elyniuk - Leetch
1987 - Marchment - Cassels
1989 - Barnes - Guerin
1990 - Tkachuk - Brodeur
1991 - Aaron Ward - Forsberg
1992 - Bautin - Jason Smith
1994 - had no 1st round pick

6 HOFers in 14 years. Guerin may be 7
11 out of 14 years the player taken after had a better career.
Winnipeg was historically a top 10 draft choice team and selected 2 HOFers in their history. Tkachuk would be #3.
