first, draper and maltby wasn't drafted by the wings. both came in trades when they were in their pro teams, not in the minors.

i dont think the scout staff can repeat the findings in late round every decade. in the 90 we got our star players from the first rounds. lidstrom, yzerman, fedorov etc.

holmstrom was the first late round draft. these kind of players are only successful because they fit into a single role. holmstrom wouldn't be as good as a normal winger. he is slow and has a weak shot. but he is perfect in rebounds a deflections.

and what team whould take prospects who didn't do good in the wings system? if you are not the best one then you have to go to the wings to learn to play role. if you aren't even able to do that you will not have a great pro career.

so no other team will take our useless prospects. and the useful we will need in the future.
thats the reason why we cant trade for good prospects imo.

maybe the wings scout do it again this decade. but i doubt it. we got zetterberg and datsyuk. thats enough for a decade with number 25-30 picks.
