The Rangers one is a very, very poor example as well since it has only been 2 years since that draft and neither McIlrath or Tarasenko has played in the NHl, while Fowler has not knocked anybody's socks off.
You know why nobody is regretting passing on Grigorenko? Because every single team knew his production would be where it is at right now. Everybody in the world know he would tear up that league this year. That's not what drafting's about. But keep on thinking that.
You're not getting my point. Grigorenko was/is top3 talent in the 2012 draft. He should have never dropped at 12, it's a known fact that NHL scouts are way too conservative. Those who succeed, are the ones who go on instinct and guts.
