    Default Teams Who Have Never Picked 1st Overall in Draft

    When the Edmonton Oilers selected Connor McDavid first overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, he became the 53rd player picked at the top of the draft. The first was Gary Monahan, back in 1963, selected by the Montreal Canadiens. Monahan isnít very famous, but he did play 768 NHL games for the Habs, Leafs, Kings and Canucks. You canít blame the Canadiens for making a bad pick though Ė back then, they were drafting 16-year olds!
    Today, a player must be 18 to be selected and the science behind the picks would probably seem crazy to an NHL general manager of the 1960s. All players today are watched by dozens of scouts, dozens of times, videotaped, statistically analyzed, interviewed and psychologically profiled. Even so, there are still busts and let-downs every year because making the NHL means youíre one of the best 700 or so hockey players in the entire world, and regardless of the depth of todayís scouting, it is still extremely difficult to project how 18-year olds will develop.
