Nine 1st round picks worse than Jamie Storr
Bleacher Report has an inane post today listing the worst 1st round picks of each team in the NHL. Jamie Storr is their pick, and that's just b***sh**. Here's my post on Storr from last year ("Jamie Storr was better than you think"). And here are some names from Kings history that have a better claim on worst 1st round pick:
[the links lead to a complete run-down of picks from that draft year, so you can revel in the teeth-gnashing joy of "what might have been"]
- 1967 - Rick Pagnutti, 1st overall pick, 0 games played.
- 1968 - Jim McInally, 7th overall pick, 0 games played.
- 1984 - Craig Redmond, 6th overall pick, 191 games played.

- 2001 - Jens Karlsson, 18th overall pick, 0 games played.
