It is positive only in a sense that we've gotten at least one NHLer (fringe one at that) from that draft. But in comparison to other teams - we've been trumped. Big time. As I've said before, every team has gotten a big impact/franchise player from the draft. Except for us. So, instead of being on par with the rest of the competition, we're one impact player behind them from the 2003 draft alone. That's not being negative, nor positive - it's being realistic.

Edit: Sign these guys to big money??? Welcome to the cap era, sir. With the way this team is structured, we'll be hard-pressed to find money for Marc Staal after his rookie deal expires. And Brandon.
