I'm hoping for a little bit of history on prospects that were considered "projects" at the time they were drafted. Usually a "project" kid can be considered to mean "a kid who's really not very good at hockey at all but has some potential". I watched Matt Pelech for half a season and I still haven't figured out why anyone ever thought he was a first round pick, he takes dozens of needless penalties, puts up no points, is injury-prone and can't really skate. He's just one example. My question is: How many "project" guys ever went on to become what those who drafted them projected them to be? Historically speaking, is taking a risk on a project a good or bad move? I'm not interested in current prospects, only in historical trends.
