Sure we won't get the Malkins and Crosbys unless we are picking 1st or 2nd but Detroit keeps uncovering top-end prospects despite usually drafting after the Rangers.

Who was the last top-end forward the Rangers drafted? It's staggeringly embarrassing.
Sure Detroit does uncover some late round gems but besides them who uncovers more late round gems than the Rangers? not many.

To be fair also the Ranger organization didn't start taking the draft and player development seriously until 2003.
