- Lehner, Butler, Rundblad, Wiercioch, Cowen, Silvferberg. Of these, 1-2 will likely reach their full potential.

So congrats to Murray on adding a single very good player to the organization every year (maybe) but that is far short of what is expected from an NHL GM.

Also, before Muckler was fired, people were talking about how good Foligno, Daugavins, Lee, Meszaros, Zubov, Anikeyenko, Lyamin, Weller, Bass et al were going to be going forward. Hopefully that provides some perspective to people listing Murray's picks like they are money in the bank.
Sure maybe 1-2 may be the only ones that become full time nhl players however more then 2 may be full time players.What you have to keep in midn si people out side of ottawa even say ottawa has some good young players.With mucks that was all we had and not many out side of ottawa said any but maybe folingo would be nhl players.Another thing in 2007 we were ranked around 29th in terms of our farm system ranking now were in the middle of the pack so murray must be doing something right.
