In this case, we can think it is due to a problem with the team development philosophy or whatever… But, why did the others picks have been a good development???
Very strange fact, very strange… I have to say it could be a question of bad luck in the first round…
One other MAJOR reason on the matter could be how those players developed after they've been drafted, maybe our trainers suck donkey balls, maybe we don't pay enough attention to our young players needs (i.e : Why the **** didn't Chipchura get skating lessons between hockey seasons???). They all need special attention and how they develop or the confidence they have at specific times can impact there development, a lot.
