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.
Subban isn't quite there yet to be honest. But most people who complain are usually talking about a superstar up front.

And the fact we didn't get one in 2003 when we had the 10th overall pick is usually the biggest knock on Timmins.

I'm not so big on the Timmins bashing, but there is some merit to the criticism of our lack of production in the 1st round AND our lack of solid top 6 players coming from our system in his stay (then again, we dealt 2 top 6 guys from Belarus for what amounts to Greg Pateryn at this point).
