Thread: 2015 Draft
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>yikes</b></div><div>People need to realize drafting is an imperfect job. I could be the best scout in the world but there is no correct formula to drafting. Look at the percentages if i remember them correctly - only like 33% of first round selections hit (make the NHL into a career). It’s like 10% on the second and 5% or less in the third. More undrafted players make up the NHL than all the rounds except maybe the 1st+2nd combined (I’m very roughly recalling quotes I remember reading).

<a href="/users/NoDeke" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@NoDeke</a> No organization in all of sports knows the answer to drafting. It’s pretty much impossible lmao.

Many players are rated better than players who go later. Players could have had bad years/ late bloomers/ develop slower. Many players aren’t drafted early because they just weren’t highly rated and most of the times it’s because they truly weren’t very good until later whereas some of the highly rated players had a great year/ do amazing in junior/ just very good - and then they fall off or injuries or it just doesn’t work out. Just like how it works out for the undrafted guys - it’s unpredictable</div></div>

Sorry that this is like beating a dead horse. I fully understand how difficult drafting is. I made this because the next three picks after theirs were unreal good players. It just sucks for them that they didn’t get one off them or just actually get an epic player, as I’m assuming thats what they were going for when they got three picks. I remember them going off the board which wasn’t surprising but Jeez! It was right there lol. unpredictable is right! Drafts are so crazy a wings fan and I know what happens in drafts lol. Like sorry not trying to make the most legit gm here, wanted to see Chabot Connor and Barzal on this team! God that would have been amazing!
