What did you say last time... something like:

C'Mon guy... take the blinders off.

As Dogs noted... we're approaching 14 years.

Detroit made two great picks in Datsyuk and Zetterberg. Saying their drafting has been amazing based on those two picks is like saying it's been horrible based on having picked two busts in the first round. Their drafting has been shown to be average at best overall. The Capitals have been better. You also made some comment about picking where they do. The Capitals have had late picks in the last few years and have picked several players who are already impact players in the NHL (Carlson, Johansson) and several others who appear to be on their way.
