When it comes to building a hockey team [url=http://www.officialblackhawksproshop.com/authentic-adidas-brandon-saad-jersey]Brandon Saad Jersey[/url] , drafting well is key. True, there are other avenues available to an NHL general manager when it comes to shaping his roster, but if you make hay on those seven (or so) draft picks you get every year, it makes the job a heck of a lot easier.

Conversely, screwing up at the draft tables can have a severely adverse effect on your team, and it can be tough to recover from a handful of draft busts over a few seasons. The worst part about the busts is that you can鈥檛 help but look back at your dud picks and think of what might have been if you鈥檇 only selected someone else who was still on the board. Hindsight can be a real SOB.

Today I looked back at all the drafts since 2010, and selected what I consider to be the 10 biggest draft busts, in addition to the 10 biggest steals [url=http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-scott-laughton-jersey]Scott Laughton Jersey[/url] , over that time period. A steal is characterized (by this list, anyway) as a player who was selected beyond the top 50 in the draft yet is having a major impact on an NHL club today.

A bust is characterized (by this list, anyway) as a top 10 overall pick who has unequivocally failed to meet the expectations set out for him by fans and scouts alike. Enjoy:

6. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (4-12)

LAST SEASON: Andrew Luck missed entire season after having surgery for partially torn labrum. Without Luck, Colts struggled. Jacoby Brissett showed promise after being acquired in cutdown weekend trade. Pro Bowl receiver T.Y. Hilton struggled, at times, usually because of no viable supportive deep threat. TE Jack Doyle had breakout season and made first Pro Bowl. Defense improved throughout season but Indy couldn't hold leads, couldn't close out games, couldn't generate consistent pass rush. Missed postseason for third straight year [url=http://www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-olli-maatta-jersey]Olli Maatta Jersey[/url] , finished with first losing record since 2011 and coach Chuck Pagano was fired hours after season finale. Eventually, Frank Reich took over for Pagano after winning Super Bowl ring with Philadelphia.

THEY NEED: DE, OL, LB, CB, WR, RB.

THEY DON'T NEED: QB, TE [url=http://www.officialflyersproshop.com/authentic-adidas-claude-giroux-jersey]Claude Giroux Jersey[/url] , K.

POSSIBLE FIRST PICK: DE Bradley Chubb, North Carolina State; RB Saquon Barkley, Penn State; G Quenton Nelson, Notre Dame; CB/S Minkah Fitzpatrick, Alabama; LB Roquan Smith, Georgia; LB Tremaine Edmunds, Virginia Tech.

OUTLOOK: GM Chris Ballard wants to build through draft and has been looking to acquire extra picks to speed up process. Already pulled off deal with Jets, picking up two seconds this year and another next year. And he may not be done. If one of top QBs is still available at No. 6 and QB-needy team is willing to pay right price [url=http://www.officialredwings.com/authentic-adidas-jonathan-ericsson-jersey]Jonathan Ericsson Jersey[/url] , Ballard says he could trade down again. If not, Colts are content staying at No. 6 and filling any number of needs. Chubb is considered best pass rusher in class and could help Colts move up from No. 31 ranking in sacks. Barkley is special and would replace recently departed Frank Gore. Nelson would help solidify interior offensive line and should help keep healthy Luck upright, if QB plays. Fitzpatrick could play anywhere in secondary that has lost both opening-day starters from 2017. Smith and Edmunds have made visits to team headquarters and would provide help in young, thin linebacking corps.
