Another couple of drafts like that and top-end talent won't be a problem.
I think that after the tremendous 2008 draft, along with guys like Anisimov, Hagelin, Sauer, Callahan, Dubinsky, etc., Slats kind of realized that the team won't have a lot of problems with depth anymore, and swung for the fences with guys like Kreider and Thomas.
I'm really hoping this trend will continue. He has even less reason to draft "safe" prospects now than ever before.
That's assuming they pan out. The team, as constructed, is just starved for scoring.
