I guess we'll have to agree to disagree. Look at the teams that have success. Nearly all of them have had top picks in the draft. Now the already dangerous Devils get to reload and add a stud to the mix. This was a year where there were no consensus #1 picks...but rather a half dozen guys rated above the rest. They went from not getting one of those guys to getting one. I'm not saying it wins them the Cup...but if they do it will likely be in part because of it.
