I don't understand the question. It was suggested that how could Sather find a franchise player drafting in the 10-20 range. The Ducks do. The Red Wings do it. The Flyers do it.

I don't have a problem with drafting high-risk, high-return players. When it's at the right time. Coming off years of adding nothing in the draft, Sather had to get a player he knew would play in the NHL in 2003. You know a safe pick like Parise
