<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ON3M4N</b></div><div>I dont think congratulations are in order, but to each their own. I've said multiple times that the 2015 draft was a miss and they messed up. Unfortunately you seem to have ignored that. I have nothing to justify, all I can do is look at what has happened based on reality. To assume the status quo after making even the smallest change is foolish. Everything from drafts picks to off-seasons moves and game results would most likely change. Not only that but player development is not guaranteed to be the same. Looks at a guy like Williams Karlsson. He was nothing with ANH and CBJ. In fact he had 50pt in 183gp. He goes to Vegas and in his first year he had 43 goals and 70pts. A guy with nearly 200gp had almost as many goals in one season with VGK than he did points for his career. Why is that? Because of how he was used, his role and numerous other factors.

You look at Chabot as he is now, but don't take into consideration how Boston would have handled him. At the time Chara and Krug were staples in the top 4. Chabot wouldn't have 24 minutes a night in Boston and he wouldn't have been on the #1PP. The Chabot you see in Ottawa may very well be different in Boston because his role and usage would be different. Same goes for Barzal. Krejci was under contract and no way is Barzal getting close to 18 minutes a night as a rookie in Boston. He probably is in a 3rd line role seeing time on PP2 and playing with Danton Heinen and Riley Nash.

This isn't a ludicrous argument at all, it's actually pretty logical</div></div>

And I’ve said multiple times that there are chain effects. But the point I keep making that you are ignoring, is that if 2015 was executed correctly, Boston would have upgrades on three different players right now.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>hanson493</b></div><div>youre assuming that none of those 3 get drafted above the bruins now though since its full hindsight.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ON3M4N</b></div><div>We don't know if they'd still be draft by Boston because every draft board would have changed. Its possible Carlo moved up on someone's board and would have been taken by someone before Boston's 2nd round pick...same for Lauzon. For Studnicka, we don't know if that pick is still in that spot again because we've changed the draft, which ripples to off-season moves, to games and outcomes, which ultimately ends with the final standings.</div></div>

You're both overthinking this so much. Yeah obviously the draft would be way different if every team used hindsight. Yes of course the Bruins would have made different moves if they drafted like this. However, what is a fact, is that the 2015 draft by Boston was one of the worst draft performances in recent memory. All teams screw up picks, but you guys somehow managed to completely botch three consecutive picks, that all occurred directly before three elite players. I made the armchair because its just so impressive just how much the Bruins managed to screw up the 2015 draft.

I find it irrational to even argue that your team would be worse right now if you instead took three elite players over two busts and a second liner. Overall, I like looking back at drafts and seeing where teams screwed up. Just so happens that the Bruins made one of the biggest draft mistakes in recent memory.
