The vast majority of organizations have either picked up franchise players from pure suckery or else have reloaded on the fly (Detroit, Philly, NJ, Anaheim) with franchise or top-line talent.
Hmm, yeah, and Price isn't that, and you probably have a crystal ball that shows you with clarity that NONE of Pacioretty, Leblanc, Subban, Weber and others will ever become that. Oh, and Streit is one of the league's best offensive Dmen. Yes we don't have him anymore, but he is top-end talent and we did draft him.

Don't confuse talents that bloomed prematurely, thinking that if our players don't do that, they'll never add up to something.
