That was actually meant as a joke. Obviously Tom Sestito is an awful NHL player.

Benning has been okay at drafting, I think that it is hard to say with late round picks though as so many things can happen.

Benning has been alternating between awful pick and great picks in the first round.

Virtanen at #6 - awful
Boeser at #23 - great
Juolevi at #5 - awful
Pettersson at #5 - great

Bennings picks outside of the first round have been garbage. If Pettersson can be a franchise player, it somewhat redeems what has otherwise been largely awful.

Virtanen has as many goals as Bennett has points. I wouldn't call that an awful pick. There were better players available but Virtanen is trending towards a 20 - 30 goal power forward which is pretty good for a 6th overall pick.

I don't think Virtanen is as bad as some around here, but beating Bennett in a quarter season doesn't mean he's a good pick. I suppose that says more about Bennett (though Bennett has had a somewhat better career so far).

You could equally pick out other picks in the same round and make a comparison. Say, Ehlers, Nylander, Larkin, Fiala, Pasternak...

Both players have underperformed to some of the other picks around them

At least both teams can be happy they didnt get Dal Colle
