2243 games played
88 drafted players
3671 games played
I know we didn't draft players like Datsyuk and Zetterberg but could we just stop saying that Detroit is good at the draft table ?
Don't forget that the Wings have traded away early picks in a lot of drafts in the process of adding players at the deadline or during the season. The last 4-5 years the Habs are above the top drafting teams also despite not getting top 5 picks every year like Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Ottawa did for 4-5 year stretches.
