Timmins so far as at least 4 in the '04 (counting Yemelin, maybe premature), '05 and '07 drafts. '06 might as well - White, Maxwell, Valentenko and Carle aren't stars but they could carve out NHL careers.
I know people are mad over Montreal's inability to draft and develop a bonafide star but in terms of pure consistency, that's pretty damn remarkable.
We already have one in PK Subban. I don't really know what people expect, for Timmins the rob the draft year after year and for us to be the most stacked team in the NHL? Landing a superstar even in a decade is good. Some teams won't.
We have Price and Subban. Other teams have just one or even none. They're young but when they both get some more experience they'll be our Crosby/Malkin. Not saying they'll be in the same mold obviously but they are going to be our big 2.
