So Sutter had to use 4-5 years of draft picks to build a farm. I don't even think that many of our picks are on the farm anymore, a lot are from trades. Doesn't the letter system mean they when they are ready for the NHL and the number mean how good they will be when they make it. Howse and Wahl are 6.5 C. Meaning they got a ways before making the NHL and when they do they will be average at best. Kabovov for example is 8 D, not close to making the show but if he does will be a top end talent. That is taking a risk.
