Yes and why weren't they picking in the top 5? Because Sather kept throwing bad duct-tape solutions at a team that needed an overhaul. If Sather doesn't keep acquiring Lindroses, Bures, Jagrs, Kasperaituses, Holiks, Kovalevs, etc., etc., etc. this team actually DOES get some top-5 picks. Sather has done the worst thing of all: he's failed to make the team competitive through his maneuvering, but he's done just enough through his mis-management to keep the team from going through its natural competitive cycle.
