So from the word go they were tough to score on. Then with their draft picks they chose offensively talented players who could eventually change the nature of the team (Gaborik/O'Sullivan/Burns and the french kid whose name escapes me that they drafted and he started as an 18 year old).
Columbus drafted has beens and were more competitive right away but faded as the players got older.
