Lots of people were dumbfounded back in the summer of 2011 when the first pick of the Jets 2.0 era was Mark Scheifele.

He was ranked 16th among North American skaters before the draft, but when the Jets brass took to the stage in Minnesota, they seemed very excited to draft Scheifele with the seventh overall pick.
