Of course Tampa counts. Carolina drafted Jeff Skinner in the 1st Round, even though he wasn't expected put up number..he's been great. I believe the Flyers drafted Mike Richards 24th in the first round in 2005. The Panthers drafted Kenndal Mcardle 20th overall.
Elite talent can be found all through out the first round. Either we have bad luck, bad scouting, or bad player development.

If Dale Tallon is the GM we think he is he'll be able to acquire the right players via trades and the draft in shorter time frame than 4-5 years. This is where waiving Grabner hurts. He could have been our 2nd line scoring winger.
