Fact of the matter is that picking players requires significant amounts of luck. You shouldn't hold that against the organization for bringing up a top 4 d-man. They saw something in him and offered him a contract. GOOD!
Bang on. For the amount of credit the Wings get for picking guys like Zetterberg late - if they knew they were going to be THAT good why on earth did they wait so long to pick them?

Credit is due, but luck is a big factor here.
