I say go for high-risk, high-return ones. Some will be Zaborsky, Swanson, Ferraro or Dube. Others will wind up being Savard, Dubinsky, Dawes or Mike York.
Take 3 picks and throw them at three high-risk, high-return prospects. Hopefully you'll get a bullseye with one of them. We won't have much more depth, but we will improve ourselves greatly at the top.
When you are going for a home run, you better off having 3 swings at it than having one that is slightly better than any of those 3.
Take the three and try it grab a potential star.
My point exactly. We don't need any Dawes' or York's. We need elite talent. We have enough depth.
And your percentages are skewed. Someone did the research and posted that it was something like 22% for a first rounder and 4% for a 3nd rounder (and less than 3% for a 3rd rounder).
