Of course most drafted players don't make it into the NHL, but it seems pretty reasonable to say we've done a worse job of producing quality NHL players over the last 10 years than many other teams. We've gotten a lot less value out of our 1st/2nd rounders, and we haven't found as many mid to late round gems as other teams have, either.
