We drafted very poorly from around 99-02, and when we went into the tank in 00-01, we thus didn't have anything to draw out of the prospect pool, and we had to wait years until guys like Weiss, Bouw, and Horton developed before we even became semi-competitive.
Don't you think it's unfortunate that the years we got high picks, there were no players like Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Toews, Kane, Stamkos, etc?

The Pens are the luckiest team in the world because they sucked and got Crosby/Malkin out of it.

I mean, I like Bouw/Weiss/Horton but that's nothing like the players listed above.
