Good management, coaching, and player development staff will succeed no matter how low they draft.

You give teams like the Islanders, Florida, Columbus extra picks every year and they'll still be terrible (note the management has changed for all of these franchises so this applies to past regimes).

You give Detroit even just a couple top 10 picks and they'd develop a star every time.
I wouldn't be so sure. Detroit is actually pretty bad in past ten years at developing first round talent.
