draft is like a crapshoot, but it makes u wonder how a team can mess up so many times. the law of average suggest dat the nucks should drafted at least 1 superstar in the first round in 30 yrs of existance, but it didnt happen. while recent expension teams like minny (gaborik), atlanta (kovalchuk/heatley) and columbus (nash) already had. it have lots to do wif development too for sure, but i think the vancouver franchise is just cursed. haha.
also, daigle was never really considered the next great player. he was drafted high cuz he put up good numbers in qmjhl, but dat was mainly due to his blazing speed. his hands were never dat great, most of the expectation came from his record-setting rookie contract.
