This obsession on what number past players were picked is idiotic. Good players are picked in all spots.
Statistically speaking the number order matters because it can be perceived as an early indicator of potential/success.
Also because of improvements in scouting you don't find many of those Datsuk or Zetterberg type players anymore buried in late rounds.
I think you misread that. Gaunce is average as a 26th overall pick. There are 26th overalls who have played many more games with much more successful careers.
^ yes my bad.
