They must be doing something right. Same with Toronto.

And Ottawa has to be on anyone's shortlist of well-run teams.
These were my buddy's impressions of the orgs. He felt that Hextall is supposed be their goalie guru, but keeps picking middling goalie talent. Clarke is Bobby Clarke. He also felt that TOR is built for now, and doesn't have a lot in their system (as I think HF backs up).

One other tidbit: Bobby Orr is a below average agent, who feels his name should get his kids better deals. I know, personally, on kid he kind of screwed. His name is Anthony Stewart, and is a FLA prospect. There is no reason why he shouldn't be on the Ibg Team, except Orr convinced him not to sign.
